D.P. McDonogh, rider of Busy Bush trained by J.T.Gorman, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung left throughout.

L.F. Roche, rider of Miss Gally Rio, trained by W. McCreery, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount met with interference after the road crossing before the straight when unable to hold her position and was checked.

The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the closing stages involving Flic Flac, ridden by P.J. Smullen, placed first, Almosthaditall (USA), ridden by D.M. Grant, placed second and Jesmond Lodge, ridden by I.T. Queally, placed third. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that Flic Flac had caused interference to Almosthaditall (USA) but had not improved her placing in so doing and therefore made no alteration to the Judges placings and took no further action.

145C Pet Stop Discount Warehouse And Fuel Hcp

R.P. Whelan, rider of Timely Call trained by J.F. Levins, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount never travelled during this race.

The Stewards interviewed Ken Hodgins, Authorised representative of L.Young, trainer of Majestic Pearl, regarding the late arrival of the horse into the Parade Ring. Evidence was heard from the representative who stated that he was on his own today and had to saddle and lead up the gelding which was stabled at the furtherest point of the yard. He added that staff were not available as they were required for farming duties. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards accepted the explanation offered but reminded Ken Hodgins concerning his responsibility to comply with the provisions of Rule 32.
