The Stewards fined the following trainer in respect of their non-runner:-

Lorcan Joseph Donnelly, trainer of Mokoro Man (Transport Difficulties) - €200

J.W. Kennedy, rider of Sam King, trained by T.M. Walsh, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount clipped the running rail and unseated.

243C Martinstown Opportunity H'cap H'dle

The Stewards enquired into the fall on the flat of Much Wants More, ridden by R.A. Doyle as they turned into the straight. S. A. Shortall reported that from his position it appeared that Much Wants More switched to the outer and caught a heel from a horse in front of him. The Stewards confirmed this on the video evidence. R.A. Doyle was unavailable due to injury. Having considered the report and viewed a recording of the race the Stewards took no further action.

The Stewards requested a report from Desmond McDonogh, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Star Power, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that he left the hood off this horse today as he had been getting too relaxed in his races recently, he also felt that today's good going was ideal and that the horse got a nice run up the inner. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

The Stewards fined Denis Gerard Hogan, €350 for failing to lodge a passport in respect of winning horse Boherna Lady, in accordance with the provisions of Rule 90(vi). Written assurance was given by the Trainer that the Passport would be forwarded to Horse Racing Ireland within the next 3 working days for verification with the markings and microchip number taken by the Turf Club Veterinary Officer.

The Stewards requested a report from Denis W. Cullen, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of By The Banks, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that despite its win in Wexford this horse appreciates waiting tactics, he ran well before falling in his first beginners chase in Tramore but didn't get home last time in Tipperary and today he seemed to benefit from being ridden less prominently. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the contents of the report.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Steps To Freedom, trained by Mrs John Harrington, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be blowing hard post race.
