The Stewards requested a report from Shane Ryder, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Clear Left, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that this filly ran well on her debut in a bumper in Naas. Nothing went right for her in Wexford two starts ago. She has been hooded in all her starts prior to today. After a recent piece of work he felt that the application of a tongue strap may benefit her. She has tended to be a weak sort of filly and he decided to ease off on working her.
