The result of the first division of the Matchbook Novice Stakes at Kempton on Tuesday had to be amended after the judge initially called Loving Glance the winner – only to correct herself and award the race to Albadr.
Two promising horses flashed across the line together, but momentum appeared to be with the fast-finishing Albadr, trained by John Gosden and ridden by Jim Crowley.
However, his head was up in the air on the line, and Martyn Meade’s Loving Glance had her nose down where it mattered.
The judge, Emily Jones, called the result relatively swiftly, only for several people on social media to immediately question it – having seen the freeze frame.
Before the weighed-in signal was given, the result was amended – with Albadr (4/1) getting the verdict by a nose from the 11/10 favourite.
