The Raceday Stewards interviewed R.P. Geoghegan, rider of Made In The Woods, concerning his use of the whip in the closing stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned, who accepted that he was in breach of the whip regulation and apologised for his actions. Having viewed a recording of the race and having considered the evidence, the Raceday Stewards found R.P.
