The Stewards enquired into possible interference inside the two furlong marker involving Cape City Boy, ridden by D.J. Mullins, placed second and Killahara Castle, ridden by M.P. Burke, placed third, where it appeared that Cape City Boy was left tight for room on the inside and a further incident outside the one furlong pole involving Cape City Boy, Killahara Castle and Sir Will, placed first, ridden by Mr P.A. King where it appeared that Cape City Boy was receiving pressure from Killahara Castle as Sir Will was gaining the lead over both of them. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards made no alteration to the Judges' placings. They did, however, caution both Mr P.A. King and M.P. Burke to ride with more care.
