040E TRI Equestrian H'cap S'chase

The Stewards requested a report from Gordon Elliott, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Woods Well, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that his charge jumped well on this occasion and appeared to appreciate the wet under foot conditions, which had helped to bring about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

040F Adare Manor Opportunity H'cap S'chase

The Stewards received a report from Mr. W. Flemming, Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Clerk of the Scales, regarding the fact that Sarah Kavanagh, rider of Miss Titanic, had presented herself to weigh out at 2 lbs overweight, which was not declared. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards allowed the overweight having consulted with R.K. Watson, trainer of Miss Titanic, but were satisfied that Sarah Kavanagh was in breach of Rule 198(vii) and having considered her previous record in this regard, they issued a fine of €150.

The Stewards fined R. K. Watson, trainer, €65 for failing to fit the declared head gear to Miss Titanic, prior to entering the parade ring.

Mr. Justice Tony Hunt (Chairman),
