The Stewards interviewed D. Porter, Authorised Representative for W.P. Mullins, trainer, concerning the failure to nominate a rider before the designated time for West Burma in this race. Evidence was heard from the trainer's representative who stated that the failure to nominate before the designated time was due to a clerical error in the stable office and he wished to convey the apologies of the trainer for the error. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards allowed the nomination of Mr. P.W. Mullins at this time. They furthermore found the trainer in breach of Rule 195 & Reg. 3 and having taken his good record, in this regard, into consideration imposed a fine of €200 on the trainer, through his representative.
Mr. George McCourt, Acting Steward, did not attend this enquiry.

Maguire at this time. They furthermore found the trainer in breach of Rule 195 & Reg. 3 and having taken his good record, in this regard, into account imposed a fine of €200.
