The Stewards fined Gordon Elliott, trainer, €350 for lodging a passport in respect of Space Cadet, in which the vaccinations did not conform with the provisions of Rule 91. The Stewards allowed the horse to run on receipt of the trainer's written assurance that the vaccinations were in order.

The Stewards enquired into possible interference between the second last and last hurdles involving Milsean, ridden by B.J. Cooper, winner and Snow Falcon, ridden by P. Carberry, placed second, where it appeared Snow Falcon suffered interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that while interference did take place, they could not be satisfied that the winner had improved it's finishing position as a result of the interference, and so they made no alteration to the judge's placings.
They were, however, of the opinion B.J. Cooper was in breach of Rule 214 in that he had ridden improperly, and having taken his record into account, they suspended him for 4 racedays.

322C 'Monksfield' Novice H'dle

The Stewards enquired into an incident shortly after jumping the third last hurdle involving Free Expression, ridden by M.P. Walsh, winner, Kauto Grand Mogol (FR), ridden by B.T. O'Connell, placed fourth and Rock The World, ridden by B.J. Geraghty, placed third, where it appeared slight interference took place. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards took no further action.
