The Stewards interviewed Mr J.C. Barry, rider of Round Tower, concerning his use of the whip in 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 Mr J.C. Barry was in breach of R10(3)(f) by using his whip with excessive frequency and consequently suspended him for 7 racedays having taken his previous record into consideration. Furthermore, the Stewards ordered that Mr J.C. Barry attend R.A.C.E for one days tuition on the correct use of the whip.
