109D Saval Beg Levmoss Stakes

At the request of the Stewards, S.

S. Foley, rider of Camphor trained by Mrs John Harrington, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount switched legs and hung left after turning into the straight.

The Stewards enquired into possible interference about one and a half furlongs from the finish involving Camphor, ridden by S. Foley, placed sixth, Cerro Bayo, ridden by K.J. Manning, unplaced, Fresnel (GB), ridden by R.P. Whelan, placed second and Loveisthehigherlaw (GB), ridden by W.J. Lee, placed third, where it appeared that Cerro Bayo was impeded. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards made no alteration to the Judges placings'. They did, however, find that the interference to Cerro Bayo was caused by S. Foley riding carelessly this being a breach of Rule 214. Having taken his previous record into consideration, the Stewards cautioned S. Foley on this occasion.

S. Foley, rider of Yulong Voice (GB) trained by Mrs John Harrington, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount ducked away when Sacramento went through with his challenge on the rails.

Foley, unplaced and China's Storm, ridden by L.T. McAteer, unplaced, where it appeared that Yulong Voice ducked outwards and impeded China's Storm. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards accepted the report that S. Foley had made at the scales prior to this enquiry and took no further action.

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined Holy Roman Empress, trained by A.P.O'Brien, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.
