P.J. Smullen, rider of Alkasser, trained by D. K. Weld, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount never let himself down on the ground.

158C Dubai Duty Free Tennis Champ. EBF H'cap

R.P. Cleary, rider of Ballyadam Brook, trained by Terence O'Brien, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount hung badly.

158D GAIN Railway Stakes

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Cappella Sansevero (GB), trained by G.M.Lyons, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

158E Dubai Duty Free Sapphire Stakes

T. Stack, trainer of Scream Blue Murder, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his charge stumbled on leaving stalls, losing ground.

The Stewards requested a report from A.P.O'Brien, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Fountain Of Youth, winner, as compared with its recent form. A.P. O'Brien reported that this horse was coming back to five furlongs today and perhaps the key to him is fast ground at the minimum trip. He had worn cheekpieces in the past but was tried in first time blinkers today which may have benefitted him also. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation.

158H Dubai Duty Free Summer (Fillies) H'cap

The Stewards informed M.Halford, trainer that Glassatura, would have to be recertified before being declared to run from stalls again.
