The Stewards received a report from Ion Hamilton , Turf Club Clerk of the Scales, regarding the fact that C.T. Keane , rider of Princess Tamay , weighed in at 1.7 lbs overweight. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned, who stated that he had a drink of water and had also facilitated the trainer by changing the girths after weighing out when it transpired that they were too loose on the filly. As a consequence of the evidence given by C.T. Keane, the Stewards further interviewed T.G. McCourt, trainer of Princess Tamay. He admitted that the original girth did not fit his filly and he changed for a smaller girth without informing the Clerk of the Scales. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that C.T. Keane was in breach of Rule 231 and they therefore suspended him for 1 raceday. The Stewards also found T.G. McCourt to be in breach of Rule 198 (vi) and cautioned him having taken into consideration some mitigating circumstances..
