At The Races published this video item, entitled “DRAMA! Campanelle wins Commonwealth Cup after Stewards’ Enquiry” – below is their description.

Campanelle (Wesley Ward/Frankie Dettori) has been promoted to first place in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot, with original winner Dragon Symbol (Archie Watson/Oisin Murphy) placed second.

Speaking as he waited for the stewards’ verdict, Ward said: “In America, she comes down – but we’re not in America.

“It’s like the Wizard Of Oz – ‘we’re not in Kansas any more’.

“Frankie said he was carried way out on the other side of the track – what that means I don’t know.

“I’d like to see them go straight, and see what happens.”

He added: “She’s run a really big race on her first run back in heavy.

“She dug deep and it was a great effort. Frankie’s gone in there with his lawyer hat on right now.”

On hearing the news, Ward said: “We’re elated. I’m glad the stewards took the time they did.”

Congratulated by Watson while he was being interviewed, Ward added: “That’s a true gentleman, right there.

“That’s her first start of the year in heavy ground, that’s really amazing.”
