The Stewards requested a report from John F.Robinson, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Mr Goodenough, placed first, as compared with its recent form. John F. Robinson reported that his charge ran well at Naas until emptying in the straight on tacky ground. Today blinkers were fitted, the ground was drier and the fact that his best previous form has been in spring time all contributed to the improved run. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

068F Emerald Contract Cleaning Hunters S'ch

The Stewards interviewed Mr E.M. O'Sullivan, rider of Cork Citizen (GB), concerning his use of the whip in the latter stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were satisfied that Mr E.M. O'Sullivan was in breach of R10(3)(f) by using his whip with excessive force and frequency and consequently suspended him for 2 racedays having taken his previous good record into consideration.
