The Stewards received a request from Ms. Emma Connolly, authorised representative for Noel Meade, Trainer, to substitute S. W. Flanagan, nominated rider of Harvest Bow with J. M. Moore, due to S. W. Flanagan being unable to weigh out at the correct weight. Evidence was heard from S. W. Flanagan who stated that he had arrived at the racecourse with 3lbs to lose but he could only shed 2lbs and would therefore have to carry 1lb overweight. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards found S. W. Flanagan in breach of Rule 195 and having considered his record in this regard they fined him €200. They allowed the requested rider change of J. M. Moore.
