The Stewards requested a report from Thomas Mullins, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Princely Conn, placed first, as compared with its recent run at Punchestown. Thomas Mullins reported that his charge was in close contention at Punchestown when making a bad mistake at the second last hurdle and was eased before the final hurdle when his chance was clearly gone.

Evidence was heard from the rider concerned who stated that he believed that he had finished seventh and it was an error on his part. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that J.B. Kane was in breach of Rule 227(i) by failing to weigh in and in accordance with Rule 230(ii) they ordered that Scenic Star be disqualified. Furthermore the Stewards cautioned J.B. Kane concerning his responsibilities in this regard.

Robinson, placed second, where it appeared that both horses had come off a line and made contact. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned.
