The Stewards received a report from the Clerk of the Scales, Mr. Hugh Hynes, that J.M. Sheridan, rider of Eyeoweyou, had presented himself at scales at two pounds overweight when weighing out without having made this declaration in accordance with Rule 195(i). Evidence was heard from the rider concerned who stated that he had an arrangement with his agent to always declare two pounds overweight when doing 8st 10lbs but this had not been done on this occasion. Evidence was also heard from Karl Thornton, trainer of Eyeoweyou. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards allowed J.M. Sheridan to ride Eyeoweyou at 2lbs overweight. However, they found J.M. Sheridan to be in breach of Rule 195(i) and fined him €150 having taken his previous record into consideration.
