Yeppoon Trials 23/04/18
Stewards inquired into the circumstances surrounding Apprentice T Doyle being dislodged near the 600 metres during Trial 4. After hearing evidence from Jockeys A. Butler, N. Seymour, C McIver and App T Doyle and observing the available patrol film, Stewards were of the opinion that CARHERO (App Doyle), when leaving the 700 metres, was inclined to hang out and shortly afterwards commenced to over race. At a point leaving the 600 metres, CARHERO continued to over-race and, despite the efforts of App. Doyle to restrain his mount, clipped the heels of SAY PLEASE (N. Seymour), blundered and caused App T Doyle to be dislodged.  Stewards determined that this incident was a racing incident and took no action.
