The Stewards enquired into the apparent improvement in form of Robin Gold, trained by Jonathan Fogarty, placed, first compared with its recent form. Evidence was heard from the trainer concerned, who stated that his charge had shown ability in the past having run well in a point to point before falling. He said his charge was weak and let out for six weeks after poor runs on the track. He further added that his charge returned from the break much stronger and settled very well today and felt a combination of both had helped to bring about the apparent improvement in form. Evidence was also heard from Mr. A. Shaw, I.H.R.B. National Hunt Handicapper, who outlined the animals previous form and was of the view that today's win was a marked improvement in excess of 14 lbs. The I.H.R.B. Veterinary Officer reported to the Stewards that Robin Gold was found to have blood at both nostrils post race, possibly as a result of exercised induced pulmonary haemorrhage. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards referred the matter to a Senior Racing Official of the I.H.R.B. for further investigation.

T. Ryan, rider of My Galway Girl trained by Denis Gerard Hogan, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount felt slightly lame on pulling up.

The Stewards requested a report from Mr. L. Wyer, I.H.R.B. Clerk of the Course, to explain the circumstances why he authorised the omission of hurdle no. 3 from the second and third circuits of this race. Mr. Wyer reported that as the race started he was satisfied that the low lying sun was not affecting the hurdles, but during the running of this race, the situation changed quickly and he subsequently omitted hurdle no. 3 on the second and third circuits in the interest of safety. Having considered the report, the Stewards accepted the explanation offered.

The Stewards fined Timothy Doyle, trainer, €350 for lodging a passport in respect of Stellar Stow, in which the vaccinations did not conform with the provisions of Rule 91. The Stewards ordered the withdrawal of Stellar Stow in accordance with the provisions of Rule 90.
