307B Cleveragh H'dle

A.W. Short, rider of Give Me A Moment trained by Patrick Griffin, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount did not handle the track.

307D Irish Stallion Farms (Mares) M'dn H'dle

The Stewards requested a report from Patrick Magee, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of She's All Vintage, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Patrick Magee stated that his charge can be keen and was dropped in at Punchestown on its most recent run, on the 14th of October, but he felt this to be much lesser race and as a result he had his charge ridden more prominently today. He stated that the change of tactics coupled with a step up in trip and a drop in grade had helped to bring about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation given.

The Stewards interviewed Paul John Gilligan, trainer of Eightytwo Team, concerning the late arrival of his charge into the parade ring. Paul John Gilligan stated that he had mistaken the off time for this race and as a consequence he was late to collect the saddle. Having considered the evidence the Stewards took no further action other than to remind Paul John Gilligan of his responsibilities in this regard.
