The Stewards enquired into the running and riding of High Tail It, ridden by M.J. Bolger, and trained by Mrs John Harrington. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned, who stated that his instructions were to settle his mount to the rear of mid division before getting into the race and to do his best. He added that the horse ran green and jumped slowly at times before the penny dropped and he began to stay on well from the third last hurdle. He concluded by saying that the horse changed his legs on ground that may have been too quick. Mrs John Harrington, confirmed the instructions and expressed her satisfaction with the ride, bearing in mind it was the horses first run. She added that High Tail It is a chaser in the making who will benefit from a step up in trip as he matures.
