After considering the evidence and viewing the replays Stewards took the matter no further as it was felt that RUN MASON RUN had contributed to the locking of wheels with SHEZA ROSE by laying in while the Panel were not sufficiently satisfied that JACK TAR would have beaten both SHEZA ROSE and RUN MASON RUN given where the interference occurred and the margin involved.
