279A Irish Stallion Farms EBF M'dn

The Stewards received a report from the Turf Club Veterinary Officer, Mr. T. Smith, that he was unable to positively identify Jolyne, trained by J.P. Murtagh, from the markings provided on the passport and the microchip number. Evidence was heard from the trainer concerned. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of Jolyne from this race and referred the matter to the Chief Executive of the Turf Club for further investigation.

279C Go Racing Waterford Testimonial Stakes

The Stewards requested a report from Edward Lynam, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Viztoria, placed first, as compared with her recent form. The trainer reported that he was very disappointed with his charge's previous run at Deauville on August 10th and despite every effort was unable to find any reason for the poor performance, other than his charge had flown to France for that race and this may have been a factor. Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

279D Staffordstown Stud Stakes

N.G. McCullagh, rider of Jeanne Girl, trained by Mrs John Harrington, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount ran very flat.

279F Irish Cesarewitch

C.T. Keane, rider of Clondaw Warrior, trained by W.P. Mullins, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount ran very keen early on and failed to quicken thereafter.
