Leonard, and Jose Echegaray, ridden by A.J. Slattery, where it appeared Miss Mirabeau (GB) unseated. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. A.J. Slattery, apprentice, gave his evidence in the presence of his master, Andrew Slattery, trainer. R.P. Downey did not attend this enquiry as he was still receiving medical treatment.
