C.D. Hayes, rider of Jarrocho, trained by David Marnane, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount got a slight bump at the furlong pole.

N.M. Crosse, rider of Raffaello trained by W. McCreery, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung left in the straight.

The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the closing stages involving Libras Power, ridden by S. Foley, placed third and Raffaello, ridden by N.M. Crosse, placed first, where it appeared Raffaello ran short of room on the rail and later drifted towards the stands in the closing stages. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that the incident was accidental, they made no alteration to the Judge's placings and took no further action.

The Stewards requested a report from W. McCreery, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Raffaello, placed first, as compared with its most recent form. The trainer reported that his charge had disappointed on his previous run at Fairyhouse, when a poor draw and fast ground were less than suitable. He felt an ease in the ground conditions and a more favourable draw, had helped to bring about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.
