The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Midst (GB), trained by D. K. Weld, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be struck into behind.

L.F. Roche, rider of Midst (GB) trained by D. K. Weld, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount ran very flat.

The Stewards requested a report from Michael Mulvany, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Prove The Point, placed first, as compared with its most recent form. The trainer reported that his charge was better suited to the drop back in trip and this in his opinion, had brought about the improved performance. Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

096F Guinness H'cap

The Stewards requested a report from A. Oliver, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Mega Fortune (FR), placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that his charge is a very big green type that has taken time to strengthen up and mature. He felt the horse had benefited from the experience of its previous run which enabled him to race more prominently. This in his opinion, had brought about the apparent improvement in form. Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.
