Romanised team's Prix du Moulin appeal to be heard in Paris on September 19

The appeal into the contested result of the Prix du Moulin is set to be heard at France Galop's headquarters in Paris on September 19.

Connections of runner-up Romanised are appealing against the decision of the raceday stewards to leave the result unaltered, arguing that the Aidan O'Brien-trained Circus Maximus carried their horse off a straight line during the last furlong and a half of a race that was decided by just a nose.

The Longchamp stewards opened an inquiry into possible interference but concluded the two horses had drifted left independently, and that both visual and verbal evidence led them to believe Circus Maximus was finishing faster than Romanised.
