The Stewards enquired into an incident approximately 2 furlongs from the finish involving Cavelli, ridden by K.J. Leonard, unplaced and Lizard Point, ridden by B.M. Coen, placed fifth, where it appeared Cavelli ran short of room on the rail. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned in the presence of Andrew Slattery, trainer and master of B.M. Coen. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that B.M. Coen was in breach of Rule 214 in that he had ridden carelessly. Having taken his previous record in this regard into account, the Stewards suspended B.M. Coen for 2 racedays.
