O'Brien, placed third, Papaya, ridden by F.M. Berry, unplaced and Rhians Hope, ridden by J.A. Heffernan, unplaced, where it appeared Papaya suffered interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion J.A.
