The Stewards received a report from the IHRB Veterinary Officer, Ms. Joan Taylor, M.R.C.V.S., shortly before the running of the first race regarding evidence of a small puncture wound on the upper 1/3 jugular off side of the neck of Got Trumped (GB) when observed by a Veterinary Assistant in the stable yard. Evidence was heard from Ms. Taylor and from Mr. N. Amond, Authorised Representative for trainer Mrs. John Harrington. The trainer's representative stated that this horse had been administered with 1000ml of Duphalyte on the previous day as part of its standard pre race routine. Ms. Taylor stated that in her opinion, the puncture wound and dried blood was consistent with this explanation. She had earlier liaised with the trainer's attending veterinary surgeon, Ms. Ellen Riordan MVB of Anglesey Lodge Equine Hospital, who had confirmed to her that she had administered 1000ml of Duphalyte to this horse on 5th November as part of routine pre race hydration. A copy of the relevant entry in the trainer's Medicines Register was forwarded to the Stewards Secretaries and a photograph of the affected area of the horse was shown to the Stewards. Prior to the full enquiry, the Stewards had allowed the horse to run and ordered post race samples to be taken.
Having considered the evidence the Stewards referred the matter to the CEO of the IHRB.

Mrs. T.K. Cooper, Acting Steward, absented herself from this enquiry.
