Tomouh 16-1 loses race after Stewards enquiry
Tomouh, tipped each-way by fromthehorsesmouth.info, won the Ministry of Sound Handicap over 7f at Chelmsford on Saturday – only to be demoted to second, due to ‘intimidation’ after a lengthy Stewards enquiry.
Saaed bin Suroor trained Tomouh, ridden by Loius Steward, made all, hanging right inside the final furlong, running on well to gain a nose win, ahead of 13-8 favourite State Occasion.
Ralph Beckett-trained State Occasion, ridden by Rossa Ryan, was carried right when challenging the winner in the final furlong.
After a Stewards enquiry the placings were reversed, due to Tomouh’s ‘intimidation’, deemed to have gone off his line towards the winning line, although there was no contact between the two. Deemed a harsh decision by some quarters.
