We have investigated photo-z of possible host galaxy (Melandri et al., GCN
14452, Levan et al., 14455). Using LePhare sw (Arnouts et al. 1999, MNRAS,
310, 540; Ilbert et al. 2006, A&A, 457, 841) and SDSS  magnitudes  we
estimated a redshift of the galaxy z = 0.49 (+0.12,-0.24). This photo-z
value is compatible with a spectroscopy redshift (Levan et al., GCN 14455;
Xu et al., GCN 14478; Flores et al., 14491) and  confirms the SDSS galaxy
as the host.
