The Stewards enquired into an incident in the closing stages of this race involving Hellenistic (USA), ridden by P.J. Smullen, winner, Gold Necklace, ridden by W.M. Lordan, placed third and Punch Bag, ridden by K.J. Manning, placed second, where it appeared interference took place. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards advised K.J. Manning to ride with more care in future.

D.M. Grant, rider of Dixie Highway, trained by Patrick J.Flynn, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount ran free going to stalls. Settled well in rear but was unable to find a gap to deliver a challenge in the straight but ran on late.
