The Stewards enquired into possible interference inside the final furlong involving Marshall Jennings, ridden by C. O'Donoghue, unplaced, Hibou (GB), ridden by D. Nolan, placed second, Riven Light, ridden by D.P. McDonogh, placed first and Turbine, ridden by J.A. Heffernan, placed fourth, where it appeared that Riven Light caused interference when making his challenge. 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 Judges placings'. They were, however, of the opinion that D.P. McDonogh had ridden carelessly, this being a breach of Rule 214 and consequently suspended him for 4 racedays having taken his previous record into consideration.
