Vet visit for beaten Issue.
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."
