The Stewards received a request from A.J.Martin, trainer of Anner Queen, to substitute the nominated rider S.D. Torrens, with Tom Madden, due to the nominated rider being five pounds overweight. Evidence was heard from the trainer and rider concerned. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards allowed the request, however they were of the opinion that S.D.Torrens was in breach of Rule 198 and having considered his record, suspended him for two race days. Furthermore the rider was referred to Dr. McGoldrick to have his minimum riding weight reaccessed.
