A.P. McCoy, rider of College Boy, trained by Conor O'Dwyer, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount ran keen early on and may not have handled the ground.

Mrs John Harrington, trainer of Director's Forum, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that her charge scoped abnormally post race.

W.M.Roper, trainer of Courtly Conduct, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his charge gurgled on the turn into the home straight.

336E Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beg. S'chase

D.N. Russell, rider of Folsom Blue trained by Conor O'Dwyer, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount made a mistake at the first fence and lost his confidence but gradually regained his rhythm as the race progressed.

A.P. McCoy, rider of Golden Ticket (AUS), trained by C.Roche, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount travelled well until stopping quickly after the last ditch.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Golden Ticket (AUS), trained by C.Roche, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

336G Future Champions INH Flat Race

The Stewards enquired into possible interference inside the final furlong involving Fine Rightly, ridden by Mr S. Crawford, placed second and Royal Caviar, ridden by Mr P.W. Mullins, placed first, where it appeared Fine Rightly was tight for room on the inside. 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 were, however, of the opinion that Mr P.W. Mullins had ridden carelessly and suspended him for 5 racedays having taken his previous record into consideration.
