The Stewards interviewed P. Townend, rider of Raydari (FR), trained by Rodger Sweeney, concerning his riding from the second last fence before being passed close to the finish by "Mind The Pennies" placed fifth. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned who stated that his mount never travelled from flagfall and failed to respond to pressure applied across the top of the track. He added that he allowed his mount to finish in his own time as he felt that the horses welfare was the primary concern in anticipation that something may be amiss. Rodger Sweeney, trainer, stated that his charge ran six days ago and may not have fully recovered from that run where he finished third. Having viewed the recording and considered the evidence, the Stewards cautioned P. Townend concerning his responsibility to attain his best possible placing.
