153B Louis Roederer H'cap

The Stewards received a request from H.Rogers, trainer of Calm Bay, to substitute the nominated rider S.P. Davis, with C.D. hayes, due to him being injured last evening at Limerick. H. Rogers explained that this animal was a tricky ride and therefore not suitable for an apprentice who had no previous association with riding the gelding. Consequently he was requesting C.D. Hayes to be allowed to ride the animal as he had previously won on him. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that there were exceptional circumstances in relation to the animal having difficult tendencies and having the minimum weight allotment of 8st 4 lbs therefore on this occasion they allowed the request for C.D. Hayes to substitute for S.P. Davis.
