The Stewards requested a report from K.J. Condon, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Man Of The Sea, placed first, as compared with its recent run. Michael McLoughlin, Authorised representative of K.J. Condon reported that their change had plenty of ability but had failed to run to his best despite the application of different types of headgear.
