The Aidan O’Brien-trained colt suffered an injury after flying from way back in the field to finish two short necks behind shock winner Lucayan and Veneto.
Both Furner’s Green and favourite Dabirsim were blighted by troublesome passages in an incident-packed dash down the home straight. The local stewards deliberated for a long time before allowing the result to stand.
Joseph O’Brien was catapulted to the ground after Furner’s Green broke his off fore leg. He walked away unharmed.
Dabirsim raced keenly early on under Christophe Soumillon and was short of room being squeezed out over two furlongs out.
Soumillon gathered his mount to challenge again but the colt had little left as he again found himself short of room with his pacemaker Veneto just holding on to second. Lucayan nicked the race for Francois Rohaut and Stephane Pasquier.
