S.W. Flanagan, rider of Theatre Sunset, trained by David Harry Kelly, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount missed the first hurdle and never travelled thereafter.

The Stewards requested a report from Garrett James Power, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Late Night Deed (GB), placed first, as compared with its most recent run. The trainer reported that his charge had been given a year off following her run at Punchestown in May 2014 and she reappeared at Punchestown again in May 2015 when she ran a good race. This was followed by a very disappointing run the last day at Listowel 1st June which could not be explained. Since then she has gone in foal and appears to have got stronger and better in herself. In his opinion this was a contributing factor to her improved performance. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

Flanagan, pulled up and Hallo Rosie, ridden by A. Ring, unplaced, where it appeared that Trainstation ran short of room and was pulled up having sustained an injury. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were unable to apportion blame to any rider and took no further action.
