117A Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies M'dn

The Stewards requested a report from Edward Lynam, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Promised Money, placed first, as compared with its run at Navan last Sunday. Edward Lynam reported that this filly made her course debut at Navan and ran disappointingly for no apparent reason. He stated that the filly put on 4kg for that run and returned to normal exercise during the week by cantering on Wednesday and breezing yesterday. He further added that because of the lack of opportunities and the manner in which she returned to training that he decided to let her run today. In his opinion she showed the promise today that she had been showing in her homework. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

117D Cork Racecourse H'cap

W.J. Lee, rider of Red All Star trained by Patrick Martin, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung badly in running and may have resented the application of a three ring bit.

The Stewards requested a report from Garvan Donnelly, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Lily's Prince, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Garvan Donnelly reported that this animal returned to racing at Leopardstown 15th April following a long winter break and disappointed on very soft ground for no apparent reason. He added that he was eased down when beaten. Today the gelding was run in hope but raced over an ideal trip of 6 furlongs on better ground which may have contributed to the success. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

V.Clifford, trainer of Hurricane Twister, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his charge did not handle the good ground conditions and could not go the pace in this 6 furlong contest suggesting that he may need to run over a longer distance with an ease in the ground

117E Follow Us On Facebook M'dn

G.F. Carroll, rider of Docali trained by G.M.Lyons, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount ran green early on, was off the bridle before the turn into the straight but stayed on in the closing stages.

G.F. Carroll, rider of Jembatt, trained by Michael Mulvany, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount ran out of room and checked in the closing stages.

L.F. Roche, rider of Enigma Code (UAE), trained by Denis Gerard Hogan, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount reared leaving the stalls and missed the break.

F.M. Berry, rider of Lady Ranger, trained by Adrian Paul Keatley, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount hung right throughout.

V.Clifford, trainer of Malicious Intent, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his charge blew up about 2 furlongs from the finish and may also need an ease in the ground

The Stewards requested a report from Patrick J.Flynn, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Funny How, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Eoin Norris, Authorised representative of Patrick J. Flynn reported that their charge disappointed at Leopardstown 15th April but failed to handle the very soft ground conditions and was hampered in running whereas today he raced on a quicker surface and got a good run around the outside of the field. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.
