The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the closing stages involving Harannda, ridden by O.J. Orr, placed second and Thunder Beauty, ridden by W.J. Lee, placed first, where it appeared that interference may have occurred. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards made no alteration to the judges placings. They did however find W. J. Lee in breach of Rule 214, in that he had ridden carelessly, and having considered W. J. Lee's record in this regard the stewards suspended W. J. Lee for two racedays.

O.J. Orr, rider of Harannda trained by D. K. Weld, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount ran short of room.

The Stewards received a report from the Clerk of the Scales, Mr. P. L. Malone, that S.P. Davis, rider of Boundless Power, was unable to draw the weight at which he weighed out. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned who accepted that this was the case. Evidence was also heard from Mr. John James Feane, trainer. Both the trainer and rider were unable to explain how the discrepancy had occurred. The Stewards disqualified Boundless Power in accordance with Rule 231 and took no further action.
