The Stewards interviewed T. Shanahan, trainer of Charle Brune (FR), after it appeared the hood worn by his charge became dislodged in running. Evidence was heard from the trainer concerned, who stated that he had fitted the hood correctly and could offer no explanation for what occurred, other than the velcro fastener appeared to open for no apparent reason. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards advised Mr. Shanahan to make sure the equipment carried by his charge is fitted correctly in future.
