The Stewards enquired into an incident shortly after turning into the home straight involving Specific Gravity (FR), ridden by D. O'Brien, Glassatura, ridden by S. Foley, and Swordfight, ridden by W.M. Lordan, where it appeared Specific Gravity ran short of room and had to check. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned, in the presence of Michael O'Callaghan, trainer, representing A.P.O'Brien, trainer and master of D. O'Brien.
Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion the interference was caused accidentally and they took no further action.

P.J. Smullen, rider of Koybig trained by K.J. Condon, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung badly left in the closing stages.

241F(ii) Kilkenny Apprentice H'cap (Division Two)

Gary Paul Halpin, rider of Avalanche (GB), trained by T.J. O'Mara, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his saddle slipped shortly after jumping from stalls and he collided with the running rail and was eased.
