The Stewards interviewed G.F. Carroll, rider of Togoville, concerning the fact that he appeared to move across before reaching the marker poles. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered evidence from the rider, the Stewards were of the opinion that G.F. Carroll was in breach of Rule 211 by failing to ride in a straight line from his draw until reaching the marker poles and consequently fined him €100 having taken his good previous record into consideration.

The Stewards enquired into an incident before the marker poles involving Togoville, ridden by G.F. Carroll, placed fourth, Ostatnia, ridden by W.J. Lee, unplaced and Sors, ridden by C.D. Hayes, placed sixth, where it appeared that Togoville came across before the marker poles and caused interference in so doing. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that the incident was caused by G.F. Carroll riding carelessly and consequently suspended him for 2 racedays having taken his previous recent record into consideration.

C.D. Hayes, rider of Sors trained by Andrew Slattery, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount fly leaped out of stalls losing a little ground in so doing.
