The Stewards interviewed C.A. Landers, rider of Gold Smoke, concerning his use of the whip from the last fence to the winning post. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that C.A. Landers was in breach of R10(3)(c) by using his whip unnecessarily when his mount clearly had her race won and therefore cautioned him having taken his good previous record into consideration.

J.C. Canavan, rider of Generous Guest trained by S.J.Mahon, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung badly on all bends and made a bad mistake at the second last hurdle.

John J Fitzpatrick, rider of West Light (GB) trained by Michael J. McDonagh, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount stopped quickly.

191D Packie Downey Memorial H'cap S'chase

N.P. Madden, rider of Shake The Bucket trained by Niall Madden, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount did not travel as well as usual and may need a longer trip.

P. Townend, rider of She's Everything trained by S.J.Mahon, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount never travelled and jumped badly throughout.

C.D. Maxwell, rider of Banker Burke trained by J.Larkin, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount cut out very quickly going down the back straight.

191F Tipperary Town Plaza H'cap S'chase

The Stewards requested a report from Denis Gerard Hogan, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Eiri Na Casca, placed first, as compared with its recent run. The trainer reported that his charge last ran at Wexford on the 7th July following a break since January. Early on he jumped high over the first fence which frightened him and he was not fluent afterwards and became detached as the race progressed. He added that he did not apply cheek pieces the last day but felt that they were a necessity today. In his opinion his charge jumped with confidence today and the cheek pieces were an added advantage. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.
