Bellewstown 30th August 2017

The Stewards fined the following trainer in respect of their non-runner:-

Jane M. Foley, trainer of Mack Miller (GB) (Off Feed) - €200

238A Awards And Gifts Claiming M'dn

The Stewards requested a report from T.G. McCourt, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Accladora (GB), placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that he upped this filly in trip today which seemed to suit. He also felt that she benefitted from being dropped out today rather than being ridden up with the pace. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the contents of the report.

238C(i) Eva-Tec Ltd H'cap (Division One)

The Stewards received a report from Mr. W. Fleming , Turf Club Clerk of the Scales, regarding the fact that K.K. Hennessy , rider of Mr Soprano (GB) , weighed in at 1.2 lbs overweight. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned, who stated that he had taken a drink after weighing out which may have accounted for the overweight on weighing-in. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that the rider was in breach of Rule 231 and they therefore cautioned him having taken his good previous record into consideration.

R. Coakley, rider of Volta Do Mar trained by Denis W. Cullen, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount was checked at the two furlong pole.
