The Stewards enquired into an incident after the second last hurdle involving The Job Is Right (GB), ridden by B.J. Geraghty, placed first, Unic De Bersy (FR), ridden by D.N. Russell, placed second and Gort An Chnoic, ridden by A.P. Heskin, placed third, where it appeared that Gort An Chnoic suffered some interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that D.N.Russell was in breach of Rule 214, having ridden carelessly and after considering his record, suspended him for two race days.

John E. Kiely, trainer of Lukes Hill, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his charge was lame post race.
