The Stewards fined the following trainer in respect of their non-runner:-

James M. Barrett, trainer of Pan Wandle (Off feed) - €200

283B Irish Stallion Farms EBF M'dn H'dle

283C Mobile H'cap H'dle

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Mississippilanding (GB), trained by Tracey Collins, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

The Stewards requested a report from Robert Alan Hennessy, trainer,as to the apparent improvement in form of Ultra Light (FR), placed first, as compared with her previous run at Tipperary 7th October. The trainer reported that this mare disappointed the last day when she became claustrophobic in a large field of runners whereas today she was ridden wide in a lesser field of runners. He added that she had performed well here on many occasions in the past having shown a liking for the course and had also been consistent in the U.K where her form was gained amongst small fields of runners. He was also of the opinion that todays race was of an inferior standard than that at Tipperary and his charge raced off a 9lb lower mark over hurdles compared with over fences. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

Mrs John B. Ross, trainer of Hi Chap, reported to the Office of the Governing Bodies on Monday 20th October that her charge was found to have kick back in his trachea following a scope post race.
