The Raceday Stewards requested a report from Padraig Roche, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Shadow Rider (FR), placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that this is a horse with lots of ability but he is very hard on himself. He felt that he may have benefitted from going right handed today. Having considered the report the Raceday Stewards noted the explanation offered.
