I'm a big fan of Raul but that looked bad on a big drifter.

Doesn't it just piss you off. What a clown.

A pretend grab of the hood and then takes it off at 2nd attempt. Questions need to be asked after a big late drift.
Report chrisg May 25, 2016 2:11 PM BST
yes place market drifted big time just before the off.

So smelly that. This happens time and again, I think the Starter should ensure all hoods are removed before he lets them go. If the horse can't deal with it they should be withdrawn.

To be fair, Silva did everything he could to try and make up the "lost ground". Oh, wait.......Plain

We all know what just happened .. It just impossible to prove.

any news from the stewards yet about yet another fix.
Report Racingqueen May 25, 2016 3:16 PM BST
late removal of hoods has to be looked at by the BHA

its a genuine disgrace

The Stewards held an enquiry to consider why Raul de Silva, the rider of BOURBONISTO, had been slow to remove the blindfold. Having heard his evidence and viewed recordings of the start they accepted his explanation that he missed the blindfold on the first attempt resulting in the colt being slow away.

accepted his explanation,what about the huge drift in the last minute before the off.Perhaps there should be someone to look into the behavior of the stewards.
