Walsh will aid inquiry into Foxrock

Ted Walsh says he is prepared to answer any questions the Irish Turf Club has after an inquiry into Foxrock's run at Punchestown in December was reopened.

Walsh and jockey Adrian Heskin attracted the attention of the stewards when Foxrock finished third at the track, with officials accepting the seven-year-old had finished slightly lame and lost both front shoes during the course of the race, although they banned Heskin for not reporting the issues in the first instance.

However, new footage has emerged that was not available on the day, prompting the inquiry to be reopened.

Walsh said: "Obviously they're not happy with whatever happened on that day and they're reopening the inquiry. I'll be there at the inquiry to answer any questions they want."
