M.J. Bolger, rider of Taakhy (GB) trained by Seamus Fahey, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount was pulled up having stopped quickly.

The Stewards received a report from the Clerk of the Scales, Mr. P.L. Malone, that D.G. Hogan, rider of Ekanse, had weighed in at 1.1 lbs underweight. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned who stated that he had weighed out with a heavy saddle, lead cloth and saddle pad and was satisfied that everything was in tact on his return to the weighing scales. He added that he went to the bathroom after weighing out and had sweated quite an amount during the race. Evidence was subsequently heard from Meghan Donovan, Authorised representative, who saddled Ekanse. She confirmed that she had saddled Ekanse with the exact equipment as was handed to her when the rider weighed out. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards disqualified Ekanse from sixth place in accordance with Rule 231 and took no further action other than to advise D.G. Hogan concerning his responsibility to comply with Rule 231.
