b m Kalanisi (IRE) - Cave Woman (IRE) (Court Cave)
In rear of mid-division, moderate 13th after 3 out, kept on in behind after next (Jockey said regarding running and riding that he was instructed to drop his mount in early and to give her a chance to get into a jumping rhythm over the first couple of hurdles, as she jumped a bit green in her recent run. Adding that in running the pace was fast early on, his mount made a mistake over a hurdle which knocked her back a bit and it took her a while to get going again. Having turned for home, his mount passed tired horses which got her going forward again and she finished tired. Trainer confirmed the instructions given to jockey and added that his charge fell during the week while schooling, and therefore it was important to get her confidence back today, but that jockey could have ridden a bit more vigorously however this would not have improved her final placing. The Stewards also received a report from the vet's who stated that the mare was post race normal and that samples were taken for analysis. The Stewards noted the explanations offered, however they advised jockey of the need to be seen to make a stronger effort in future.)
