The Stewards enquired into the apparent improvement in form of Rosie Alice, trained by C.Byrnes, placed, first compared with its recent form. Evidence was heard from the trainer concerned who stated that his charge had only run twice before today, initially in an I.N.H.S Flat race at Cork on 1st November when running a good race to finish 5th when ridden by E. O'Connell. Subsequently the filly ran seven days later in a maiden hurdle at Limerick when again ridden by E. O'Connell. He added that she jumped off about three quarters way back in that hurdle race as instructed but she ran very green and continuously lost ground at her hurdles before passing the stands in last place and became more detached from the runners which diminished her enthusiasm resulting in her being left alone in the home straight when tailed off. Since then the filly was schooled intensely and participated in a schooling race at Tipperary. She continued to work well at home and her final piece of work was very encouraging. He concluded by offering a number of factors that contributed to todays success to include improved jumping, working very well, travelled and jumped well today and got a very positive ride from D.N. Russell in a weaker contest than that at Limerick. Evidence was also heard from Andrew Shaw, Turf Club N.H. Handicapper, who stated that Rosie Alice was beaten about 63 lengths at Limerick when held up towards the rear of the field but became tailed off in the later part of the race. In his opinion todays performance represented over 14 lbs improvement even allowing for today being a weaker contest. He concluded by stating that different riding tactics were used today with the filly racing more prominently. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation.

The Stewards received a report from Mr P. Power , nominated rider of Dunroe Boy , that he would present himself at scales at 3 lbs overweight. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned, who stated that he had informed the trainer Thomas Coyle that he would be a possible 2 lbs overweight. He added that his weighing scales had shown inaccurate information and it became impractical to lose the required weight today. Evidence was also heard from Thomas Coyle, trainer of Dunroe Boy, who admitted that he had erred in failing to declare a possible 2lbs overweight and further requested that D. Meyler be allowed to replace Mr P. Power. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that Mr P. Power was in breach of Rule 198 and they therefore fined him €150. Furthermore the Stewards cautioned Thomas Coyle concerning his responsibility when declaring riders possible overweights any time in the future. The Stewards allowed the request for the change of rider.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Following an inspection of the course by the Acting Stewards after the running of the fifth race, the track was found to be waterlogged in places and unsafe rendering it unfit for racing to continue. The Stewards therefore abandoned the remainder of the meeting in the interest of safety. .
