The Stewards fined Noel C. Kelly, trainer, €350 for lodging a passport in respect of Usain Boat, in which the vaccinations did not conform with the provisions of Rule 91. The Stewards ordered the withdrawal of Usain Boat in accordance with the provisions of Rule 90.

The Stewards interviewed L.T. McAteer, rider of Battledore (USA), 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 the rider was in breach of Regulation 10.3(b), in that he had used his whip unnecessarily after his chance of winning or being placed had clearly gone. Having taken his previous record in this regard into account, the Stewards suspended L.T. McAteer for 1 raceday.

The Stewards interviewed Siobhan Rutledge, rider of The Feathered Nest, concerning her 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 the rider was in breach of Regulation 10.3(b), in that she had used her whip unnecessarily after her chance of winning or being placed had clearly gone. Having taken her previous record in this regard into account, the Stewards suspended Siobhan Rutledge for 1 raceday.

The Stewards enquired into an incident approximately one furlong from the finish involving Futurum Regem, ridden by J.A. Heffernan, placed sixth, Zarafshan, ridden by O.J. Orr, placed fifth and Geolai, ridden by K.J. Manning, placed third, where it appeared interference may have occurred. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that there was insufficient evidence to disclose a riding offence and therefore took no further action.

O'Donoghue, placed seventh, where it appeared Giuseppe Garibaldi met with interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that O.J.
