John M. Oxx, trainer of Agent Zigzag, reported to the Clerk of Scales that he had declared his charge to run in cheekpieces which was not noted in this evening's racecard. Having consulted the official HRI declarations sheet published at 1215 on 5 June 2019, the stewards were satisfied that an error was made in printing this evening's racecard, and they therefore allowed Agent Zigzag to run in cheekpieces in accordance with Rule 194 (ii)(h).

The Stewards enquired into possible interference inside the final furlong of this race involving Monaco Rose (GB), ridden by A.J. Slattery, placed first and Walking On Glass, ridden by C.G. O'Dwyer, placed second, where it appeared that Walking on Glass was forced to check. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned, in the presence of Padraig Roche, trainer, accompanying C.G. O'Dwyer. 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 interviewed G.M. Ryan, rider of Time For Mabel (FR), concerning his use of the whip in the closing stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that G.M. Ryan was in breach of Regulation 10.3 (g), in that he used his whip with excessive frequency. Having considered his record in this regard, the Stewards suspended G.M. Ryan for 2 racedays and reminded him of his future responsibilities in this regard.

The Stewards interviewed C.G. O'Dwyer, rider of Walking On Glass, concerning his use of the whip in the closing stages of this race.
