Chachamaidee: Controversial victory
Chachamaidee was awarded the Matron Stakes at The Curragh in the stewards room after Duntle finished first past the post.
David Wachman's filly was beaten at Leopardstown in Group 3 company back in May but the daughter of Danehill Dancer had blossomed in the interim and showed plenty to determination to finish first past the post in the Group 1 Matron Stakes.
Wayne Lordan managed to find his way out from behind the pace-setting Laugh Out Loud, and was able to repel the challenge of Chachamaidee, but in making the original manouvere, she inconvenienced Alanza, who in turn, had caused interference to Sir Henry Cecil's mare.
After an inquiry that lasted almost 25 minutes, the stewards ordered the positions to be reversed.
Emulous shaded market leadership at 11-4 and while Dermot Weld's filly was travelling as well as any as they turned in, she had no more to give inside the distance.
