The Stewards informed Christopher Phillips, trainer that Quickaswind, would have to be recertified before being declared to run from stalls again.

281C Waterford Testimonial Stakes

Sabrina J. Harty, trainer of Have A Nice Day (GB), reported to the Clerk of Scales that her charge was found to be coughing post race.

The Stewards interviewed Denis W. Cullen, trainer of Baby Dinnis, concerning the behaviour of his charge who was very slowly away from stalls, veered left on exiting and subsequently took no part in the race. The Stewards advised Denis W. Cullen, that, a repeat of this behaviour would render his charge liable to suspension.

281F Tote Cesarewitch

The Stewards requested a report from W.P. Mullins, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Digeanta, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer's representative, Ben Delmar, reported that this horse became upset in stalls last time at Leopardstown, missed the break and never travelled thereafter. It was also felt that the one mile six furlongs was a little on the sharp side with today's extra two furlongs benefitting the horse. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the contents of the report.

The Stewards interviewed L. Morris, rider of Sea Pride, concerning his use of the whip in the latter stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards found L. Morris in breach of Reg 10 3 (a) and (g) and having taken his record into account the Stewards cautioned him regarding his whip use and also advised the rider to familiarise himself with the whip rules in future.

C.D. Hayes, rider of Majenta, trained by Kevin Prendergast, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount ran too free.
