Interesting times ahead for race day stewards.Judging by the latest press releases on the turf club website.There doesn’t have to be physical contact for interference to be caused and what had occurred was intimidation.They is a line from the  Larchmont Lad appeal.

I see  Alan Delaney was cautioned for not having his horse in the parade ring on time on Sun, how many times have they cautioned Willie for the same thing I wonder! its everyday with him it seems.

Contact was never an issue so i don't understand the OP.

Taking my ground Governor.

When farmer brown ran in a flat maiden at leopardstown and was as good as put over the rails i say his ground may have been taking.But in good old Ireland more often then not it comes down to the connections of the horse.To say the connections of Larchmont Lad were hard done by is a understatement.Both horses drifted away from the winning post.

I thought it was a terrible decision, there was a fair debate on the main forum on it.

I don't deny Churchtown glen was given an easy on Sunday but thought for a maiden the punishment was way over the top.

The Leopardstown case was a pretty unique one all the same, it was the only stewards enquiry  in my lifetime that I can remember where the connections of the second were more anxious for no alteration than the connections of the winner.

Whats going on! Yet another post stripped.

It would have appeared just after PA's last post.

It can't have been deemed anything at all.I am mystified as it only described what i saw in the closing stages of the Larchmont lad race.

So to clarify again, my previous point was that contact was never an issue in any case with regard stewards or ground taken or horse wandering or shying etc..ie contact was never required so still don't see how this changes anything as suggested in opening post.

This is all i had and was referring to, however my view is that the decision was a shocker as the jockey had given a few right handers, had yanked with the left hand to straighten and more to thre point was the head carriage of the animal showing a desire to hang right.
