The Stewards requested a report from Charles O'Brien, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Big Gossey, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Eileen Furlong, Authorised Representative for the trainer, reported that Big Gossey is a temperamental individual that has had behavioural issues down at the start and as a result of this, is on the starters list for loading late. She said that although the rider was dislodged down at the start today, the animal behaved well and broke smart from the stalls. She added that they had removed the tongue tie today in order to help settle her charge and also pointed out that Big Gossey was dropped 2ibs since its last run
She concluded by stating that a combination of all these factors had helped to bring about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards noted the content of the report
