200F Arthur Guinness H'cap

The Stewards enquired into the apparent improvement in form of Tudor City, trained by A.J.Martin, placed, first compared with its recent form. Evidence was heard from Garry O'Gorman, Turf Club Handicapper and the trainer concerned. Mr O'Gorman stated that he had initially given this horse a mark of 57. It had shown little or no form in its runs so far and his last run probably represented its best form. He stated that today's run off 54 represented a significant improvement in form. Mr Martin stated that this horse has suffered from a problem in his larynx and has gurgled at home since his last run. He applied a tongue tie since and he has been a different horse with it applied.
Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the trainer's explanation.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Easy Boy, trained by Patrick Martin, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.
