dont see the point of rides like that - when its that obvious everyone lumps on next time and the price disappears

332F Weatherbys Ireland GSB H'cap S'chase

The Stewards enquired into the running and riding of Foxrock, placed third, ridden by A.P. Heskin, and trained by T.M. Walsh. Evidence was heard from the rider and trainer concerned.
A.P. Heskin, stated that his instructions were to jump his mount off 5th or 6th, give him space at his fences, get into a good rhythm and do his best from there. He said early on the race was developing as he planned but after passing the stands, he clipped a heel, stumbled badly and lost his action and from there on he wasn't entirely happy with his mount, with him being behind the bridle from down the back straight. He said from about 4 out he was riding as strong as he could bearing in mind he wasn't entirely happy with how he was moving.
T.M. Walsh confirmed the instructions and stated that watching the race live he felt his rider could've been a bit more forceful between 3 out and 2 out, and he could've used his whip at this stage. However his rider explained on dismounting how he wasn't entirely happy with how the horse moved in the second half of the race and as the horse returned to the stable yard, Mr Walsh noticed that his front shoes were missing, and at this stage his riders report made sense and he was satisfied with the ride.
The Stewards also received a report from the Turf Club Veterinary Officer who stated that Foxrock had pulled off both his front shoes in running and was slightly lame post race.
Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards noted the explanations offered by both rider and trainer, but were of the opinion A.P. Heskin was in breach of Rule 213 in that he failed to report in the first instance something that may have affected the running of his mount, and having taken his record into account, they suspended him for 1 race day,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the untochables dodge the bullet again,again,again and again

No way, Heskin does not ride that way........... have a look at Heskin in other chase rides and u will see. And watch the Foxrock ride and u will see the comparison with today`s ride.

All jockeys do what their told to do if they want to keep the retainer, as for heskin today was just a poor ride even allowing for the fact the horse has been a dodge pot in the past

Heskin wouldn't ride a rocking horse.....he is a very average rider.....
