That was lovely. It mightn't have been much of a race but at least he won. He stayed galloping the whole way to the line and I was probably running him over the wrong trip the whole time. He has to have good ground. It's great for the owner who has had two winners inside a week so he's delighted. John Joseph Hanlon, trainer
The Stewards requested a report from John Joseph Hanlon, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Nasee (GB), placed first, as compared with its recent run at Limerick on the 27th May. The trainer reported that his charge had setbacks in training and made his seasonal debut at Limerick where the ground deteriorated as the day progressed. In his opinion todays success was gained by the race being a weak contest and furthermore his charge really appreciated the good ground. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report
The Stewards enquired into possible interference after the last involving Only For Pascal, ridden by C.D. Maxwell, placed dead heated for third, Callaghy Rose, ridden by H. McOwan, placed dead heated for third and Rubiana, ridden by M.J. Bolger, placed second, where it appeared Rubiana drifted left and caused interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. C.D. Maxwell stated that his horse was running on well when meeting interference from his outside which he felt cost him a place. H. McOwan stated that his horse got carried left by Rubiana which caused him to check and cost him a place. M.J. Bolger stated that he was aware of the horses on his inner and accepted that he had caused interference. He further added that he put down his whip and straightened his mount using his reins. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that while interference had occurred it did not cause any horse to improve its placing and therefore made no alteration to Judges placings. The did however find M.J. Bolger had ridden carelessly and considering his record in this regard, they suspended him for 2 racedays.
