Lee the benefit of the doubt in accepting that the first hit was used for corrective purposes and as the remaining hits did not breach R10(3)(g), they did not take any action

The Stewards requested a report from W. McCreery, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Petticoat Rule, placed first, as compared with its recent run at Killarney on the 19th August . W. McCreery reported that the application of a visor and the fast ground conditions were contributing factors for today's improved run. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report

The Stewards interviewed D.W. O'Connor, rider of Jered Maddox (GB), concerning his use of the whip in the latter stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that D.W. O'Connor was in breach of R10(3)(g) by using his whip with excessive frequency. Having taken his previous record into consideration, the Stewards suspended D.W. O'Connor for 1 raceday.

The Stewards requested a report from Eoin Christopher McCarthy, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Fascinating Spirit, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that his charge had disappointed on its previous run at Dundalk and felt the new surface may have contributed to this. He further stated that his charge appeared to have a liking for this racecourse having ran well here prior to her Dundalk run and felt this had helped to bring about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.
