The Stewards enquired into possible interference after the last hurdle involving Pace And Passion, ridden by J.S. McGarvey, placed first and Misdflight, ridden by D.G. Hogan, placed second, where it appeared Pace And Passion crossed Misdflight on the run to the line. 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 Judge's placings and took no further action.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Don Franco, trained by Eoin Griffin, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be blowing hard post race.
Samples were taken for analysis.
