Fairyhouse 5th July 2020

The Stewards fined the following trainers in respect of their non-runners:-

M.D. O'Callaghan, trainer of Alexei Vronsky (Off Feed) - €200
Noel Meade, trainer of Wonder Spirit (GB) (Ground Conditions) - €200

138A Irish Stallion Farms EBF M'dn

The Stewards enquired into possible interference inside the final furlong involving Ontario, ridden by M.C. Hussey, placed first, Reve De Vol, ridden by D.W. O'Connor, placed second and Sword Zorro, ridden by C.P. Hoban, placed third, where it appeared Ontario shifted left and bumped Reve De Vol. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards reversed the Judge's placings of first and second placed horses.

The amended result now reads;
1st Reve De Vol
2nd Ontario
3rd Sword Zorro
4th Grid (GB)

Furthermore the Stewards found M.C. Hussey in breach of Rule 214 through careless riding and having taken his record into account suspended him for 1 race day.

138B Ratoath Pharmacy H'cap

R.C. Colgan, rider of Takeachancejimmy trained by Nigel Thomas Slevin, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount was squeezed out of the race after a furlong.

The Stewards enquired into an incident shortly after leaving stalls involving Takeachancejimmy, ridden by R.C. Colgan, Drumquina, ridden by C.D. Maxwell, and Red Cymbal (GB), ridden by C.J. McGovern, where it appeared Takeachancejimmy received interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards found C.J. McGovern in breach of Rule 214 through careless riding and having taken his record into account suspended him for 2 race days.

138E Tatts Ire Goresbridge Breeze-Up H'cap

The Stewards requested a report from J.P. Murtagh, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Springbank, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Valerie Keatley, Authorised Representative for the trainer reported that this horse got crowded in the early stages at Leopardstown last time and dropped out. The rider was instructed to ride the horse more handily today and get him into a rhythm as he can be lazy. This may have led to the apparent improvement in form today. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined Silvertown, trained by A. Oliver, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

S.T. McCullagh, rider of The Truant trained by Mrs John Harrington, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung left in the straight.
