The Stewards enquired into an incident in the closing stages of this race involving Vormir, ridden by C.T. Keane, fifth, Jawbone, ridden by W.J. Lee, placed fourth and Be Like The Bird, ridden by B.M. Coen, placed first, where it appeared Vormir ran short of room and had to check. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned.

The Stewards enquired into the circumstances that resulted in A.C. Persse, rider of Light Breeze, trained by Joseph Patrick O'Brien, being weighed out on three separate occasions for this race causing a delay of ten minutes to the starting time. Evidence was heard from Mr. L. Walsh, IHRB Clerk of the Scales and Mr. Brendan Powell, Authorised representative of the trainer. Having considered all the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that the problem lay with the new weighing scales system and referred the matter to the CEO of the IHRB for further investigation.

At the request of the Stewards, Emma Louise Doyle, rider of One For Della, trained by Timothy Doyle, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that her mount may have clipped heels and fell independently of any other horse.

The Stewards wished to interview W.J. Lee, rider of Nitro Boost, concerning his frequent use of the whip in the closing stages of this race. W. J. Lee confirmed to the stewards that he had three previous breaches of Regulation 10 since the new whip rules came into effect. Having considered the riders acceptance of his disciplinary record in relation to Regulation 10, the stewards referred the matter to the referrals committee for consideration under Regulation 10.6.

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined Hathiq, trained by Denis Gerard Hogan, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

The Stewards requested a report from W. McCreery, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Nitro Boost, placed first, as compared with its recent form. W. McCreery stated that the drop back to five furlongs and the advantageous stand side draw both contributed to the improvement in form. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.
