235E Easkey H'cap H'dle

The Stewards reviewed an incident turning into the home straight involving Mon Storm, ridden by D.J. O'Keeffe, placed second and My Manekineko (GB), ridden by G. Brouder, placed first, where it appeared that Mon Storm ran short of room. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the matter, the Stewards were satisfied that no further action was warranted.

The Stewards requested a report from Norman Lee, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Oskar High, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Norman Lee stated that his charge has not run in three months and appreciated the yielding ground today and his horses also seem to have returned to form recently. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation given.
