Vet visit for beaten Issue.

PALACE ISSUE goes to the vets today for a precautionary check following his elimination from the Stewards Cup at Walthamstow on Thursday, writes Mike Palmer.

Linda Mullins' star stayer, who was suffering only his second defeat in 20 starts as a distance dog, went off 2-5 favourite but came home last, beaten more than ten lengths behind Redwood Molly.

"He trapped out okay but from then on went backwards," said Mrs Mullins yesterday. "True, he took a couple of bangs but it wasn't his real running.

"He's a little bit stiff in the off-hind but other than that I can find nothing wrong, nothing serious that is.

"But to make absolutely sure he'll go to the vet in the morning and my man will go over him with a fine-tooth comb."
