Donald McCain: Disappointed

Jockey Jason Maguire eased the gelding and then brought him to a standstill after the horse stumbled at the third-last flight when about make his challenge.

Clondaw Kaempfer had been fancied to run a big race after winning his first two starts over hurdles and was sent off 2-1 second favourite behind market leader Taquin Du Seuil, who went on to land the Grade One contest.

"He wasn't too bad yesterday after the race but he is a little stiff and sore this morning," said McCain.

"It's not drastic but we'll have a proper look at him to make sure."
