    The hind legs of Formal Decree appeared to slip as he rounded a turn. On falling he brought down the runner directly behind him and badly hampered the two held up at the back. On first look it seemed a horiffic incident but Detorri got up and amazingly walk away and didn’t look to be hurt. I don’t know how the horses involved fair but it looked that Formal Decree would have injured himself and maybe badly.<br>Incidently McEvoy won on Stage Gift Godolphin’s other runner.

    Both horses looked to be alright.

    On first viewing it did look nasty but they showed it from another angle and he got up straight away.

    Frankie seems to get dumped on the turf a fair bit at Longchamp doesn’t he? ;)

    I didn’t see the incident although I saw the result on France-Galop and noted that there had been a fall. I can’t recall Dettori, or any other British jockey, falling at Longchamp in the recent past. Good to hear that all seemed to survive.

    Seems like a case of elaborate team-tactics to me…Dettori throws horse in front of another…stablemate wins…
