The Stewards requested a report from Patrick Martin, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Indiana Grey, placed first, as compared with its recent run at the Curragh on November 6th, when finishing last of 17 runners and was beaten by 26 and a 1/2 lengths. The trainer reported that his charge was unsuited by the draw on her previous run and was forced to race on the worst of the very heavy ground conditions as a result of this. He said his charge was better suited to the better gound conditions on this occasion and felt this had helped to bring about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.
