The Stewards requested a report from Edward Lynam, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Tide Of Time (GB), placed first, as compared with its recent form. Mr. Lynam reported that his charge has been unlucky in his previous runs and that today's distance seemed to have suited him better. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

The Stewards enquired into the apparent improvement in form of Enter The Red, trained by Aidan Anthony Howard, placed first, compared with its last run. Evidence was heard from the trainer concerned who stated that on his last run, his charge injured himself coming out of the stalls, and to the best of his knowledge this had been reported to the Clerk of Scales by the rider.
