Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that the rider was in breach of Regulation 10.3(e) and 10.4, in that he hit the horse other than down the shoulder or hindquarters and without giving his mount time to respond. Having taken the riders record into account, they cautioned him concerning his future responsibilities in this regard.
