C.A. Landers, rider of High Nellie trained by Michael J. Bowe, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his saddle slipped after crossing the line.

P.E. Corbett, rider of Jazz Mine trained by John Gerard Lonergan, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount did not handle the ground and pulled up.

The Stewards interviewed C.A. Landers, rider of High Nellie, 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(f), in that he used his whip with excessive force. Having taken his previous record in this regard into account, the Stewards suspended C.A. Landers for 4 race days.

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined An'ball (FR), trained by Ray Hackett, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

The Stewards enquired into the running and riding of An'ball (FR), ridden by S.E. Lewis, and trained by Ray Hackett. Evidence was heard from the rider and trainer concerned. S.E. Lewis, stated that his instructions were to jump off to make it and try to run his best race possible. He said his mount came back under him after jumping the first and second hurdle and was unable to get his mount to travel during the race thereafter. Ray Hackett, confirmed the instructions given. He said his charge lost ground after backing off the first and second hurdle and seemed to struggle from there. He added his charge does come off the bridle during a race and stay on in the closing stages. He added that with a stronger ride his charge may have finished closer. Evidence was also heard from Mr. A. Shaw, Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Senior National Hunt Handicapper and the Stewards also received a report from the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer who stated that An'ball (FR) was found to be post race normal. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards noted the explanations offered.

D.N. Russell, rider of Rio Lobo trained by Henry de Bromhead, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung and finished lame.
