154F Jack Duggan Memorial H'cap Hdle

The Stewards requested a report from Patrick J.Flynn, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Gusty Rocky, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that his charge had lost his confidence over hurdle having made mistakes. He ran well on the flat the last day, which seemed to rekindle his enthusiasm. The trainer also felt that the step up in trip helped his charge return to form. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation offered.
