The Stewards requested a report from Colin Bowe, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Havana Dancer, placed first, as compared with its recent run at Downpatrick on the 6th May. Colin Bowe reported that Havana Dancer made her debut under his care at Downpatrick. He felt that she may not have acted on that track and added that a few factors that may have contributed to today's success included the lesser undulating track, the soft ground conditions, the application of a tongue strap because of a slight respiratory infirmity and the fact that she was working well at home. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

C.A. Murphy reported that Sizing Alberta (FR) made his debut under his care at Sligo. He added that he was disappointed with his performance that day and singled out the fact that Sligo was a sharp track which allowed the runners to get away from him whereas he was more suited to today's galloping track. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

M.A. Enright, rider of Colette's Choice, trained by S.J.Mahon, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount stumbled and slipped up independently on leaving the back straight.
