023E Bet With The Tote H'cap H'dle

The Stewards received a report from William Fleming , Turf Club Clerk of the Scales, regarding the fact that S.W. Flanagan , rider of Degenerous , weighed in at 2.2 lbs overweight. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned, who stated that he had lost some weight to ride at 10 stone but felt dehydrated after weighing out and consequently had a drink of water. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that rider S.W. Flanagan was in breach of Rule 231 and they therefore suspended him for 2 racedays having taken his previous record into consideration.
