R.P. Cleary, rider of Centavof, trained by James M. Barrett, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount came off the bridle early and never travelled thereafter.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Centavof, trained by James M. Barrett, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

The Stewards interviewed Christina Simpson, rider of Abby Cadabby, concerning her use of the whip in the closing stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that the rider was in breach of Regulation 10 3 (b), in that she had continued to use her whip after her chance of winning or being placed had clearly gone and having considered her record, cautioned her as to her future responsibilities in this regard.

The Stewards requested a report from David Marnane, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Hi Emperor, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Louise Finn, authorised representative for the trainer, reported that this was a big horse, that ran very free on his previous run at the Curragh after a long break. She felt that the horse had improved from that run and had settled much better today, this in her opinion, had brought about today's improved performance. Having considered the report, the Stewards accepted the explanation offered.

C.P. Hoban, rider of Red All Star, trained by Patrick Martin, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount hung right in the straight.

P.M.Rogers, trainer of Romantic, reported to the Office of the Governing Bodies on Friday 2nd May that his charge was found to have pulled a muscle in his back after he was examined at his yard.
