The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Raymonda (USA), trained by D. K. Weld, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be distressed post race.

The Stewards enquired into an incident about two furlongs from the finish involving Mimicking, ridden by K.J. Manning, placed sixth, Most Beautiful (GB), ridden by W.M. Lordan, placed second and Raymonda (USA), ridden by P.J. Smullen, placed fourth, where it appeared that Mimicking ran short of room and was checked. 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 accidental in nature and took no further action.

178D Irish Stallion Farms EBF M'dn

K.J. Leonard, rider of Prospectorion (GB) trained by J.F. O'Shea, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount lost his action turning into the straight.

178E Coral.ie H'cap

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Camellia Japonica, trained by Joseph G. Murphy, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be clinically abnormal post race.

178F Dublin's Q102 Apprentice H'cap

The Stewards enquired into the false start to this race where the inside three stalls opened and the remainder of the stalls failed to open. Derek Cullen, Turf Club Starter, stated that the stalls had been checked prior to the arrival of the horses to the start and the electrical system was found to be in order. The horses were then loaded into stalls. Jason Grogan, H.R.I Stalls Technician in charge confirmed that the stalls were ready for use following a pre race trial but found that the problem arose when a contact wire had become loose when some horses became fractious in the stalls causing the structure to shake. The socket was tightened and the stalls worked at the second time of asking. Having considered all the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that the malfunction was caused by a mechanical failure and noted the explanations offered.
