The Stewards requested a report from Edward Cawley, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Nobody Home, placed first, as compared with its last run. Edward Cawley stated that on his last run his charge raced mid division and never settled. Today his charge raced from the front and the change in tactics suited him better and in his opinion explained the improvement in form. Edward Cawley added that the presence of a loose horse aided his charge at the front of the field. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

339G KettlesHotel Fingal Ravens(P-A)Flat Race

The Stewards interviewed Mr A.M. King, rider, in relation to the manner in which he pulled up his mount after being clearly injured. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned who stated that he was aware that his mount had been injured however he found it difficult to pull his mount up and he is inexperienced in these circumstances. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that Mr A.M. King was in breach of Rule 272 (i) by failing to react appropriately to his mount being injured, failing to pull up in a timely manner and in leading away a clearly injured horse having dismounted. The Stewards considered that Mr A.M. King's actions were attributable to his inexperience, that he misjudged the situation and having considered his previous record in this regard suspended Mr A.M. King for 5 racedays.
