The Stewards enquired into possible interference from the road crossing to the latter stages involving Buck Dancing, ridden by D.N. Russell, placed third and Fr Humphrey, ridden by M.P. Fogarty, placed second. 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 judge's placings and took no further action.

The Stewards requested a report from F. Flood, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Down Under, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer's representative reported that his charge is an inconsistent type who has disappointed in the past but is a previous course winner. He also felt that today's race didn't take alot of winning. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanations offered.
