R.C. Colgan, rider of Half Nutz trained by Ms. Sheila Lavery, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount had his head turned sideways when the starting stalls opened causing him to lose ground by jumping out slowly.

The Stewards requested a report from Joseph G. Murphy, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Galtee Mist, placed first, as compared with its recent run at Listowel on the 22nd September. Joseph Murphy, Authorised representative for Joseph G. Murphy, trainer, reported that their horse's had started to run below par prior to Listowel but there were no abnormalities found. At Listowel their charge clipped a heel in running and failed to act on the ground, this matter being reported by M.A. Gallagher, the rider on the day. He added that since Listowel their horses were freshened up and today's success was the first for the yard since August. In his opinion the horses may be returning to form. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.
