The Stewards enquired into the running and riding of Benfit Of Kash, ridden by T.N. Brett, and trained by John Patrick Ryan. Evidence was heard from the rider and trainer concerned. T.N. Brett stated that his instructions were to drop out, get his mount to settle and to do the best he could. He said his mount had ran very poor previously when running prominent, only to fade quickly. He said his mount jumped well throughout, came off the bridle before getting a second wind and ran on one paced in the closing stages to pass tired horses. He also stated that he lost some ground by avoiding a faller at the second last hurdle.
John Patrick Ryan, confirmed the instructions given and expressed his satisfaction with the ride. He stated that his charge was a very limited filly that had disappointed in the past. He further stated that knowing his charge the way he does and how moderate her work is at home, he was pleasantly surprised at how well she finished out her race today.
The Stewards also received a report from the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer, who stated that Benfit Of Kash was found to be post race normal. Samples were taken for further analysis. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards noted Mr. Ryans explanation and advised T.N.
