J.S. McGarvey, rider of Jake Peter, trained by Patrick J.Flynn, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount jumped poorly, ran very green and never travelled through out.

The Stewards enquired into the running and riding of Canford Lady, ridden by M.J. Bolger, and trained by Seamus Fahey. Evidence was heard from the rider and trainer concerned. M.J. Bolger, stated that his instructions were to drop in, settle his mount and to do the best he could. He said his mount jumped the first few on her head but settled well thereafter and jumped well over all. He said he rode his mount to get home as she had failed to stay the trip on her previous run and with this in mind, he allowed his mount time to fill her lungs before running on in the closing stages past tired horses.
Seamus Fahey, confirmed that the rider rode to instructions and expressed his satisfaction with the ride. He said his charge had disappointed in the past and felt that she appeared to appreciated the better ground today. He further added that in future, he would instruct the rider to ride her differently given how well she appeared to appreciate the better ground. The Stewards also received a report from the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer, who stated that Canford Lady had a skin graze on the inside of the left fore cannon but was otherwise post race normal. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that both rider and trainer were in breach of Rule 212 A(ii). Having taken their previous records in this regard into account, the Stewards suspended M.J. Bolger for 5 racedays and ordered that he forfeit his riding fee. The stewards fined Seamus Fahey, trainer, €2000 and suspended Canford Lady for 42 days.

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined Jake Peter, trained by Patrick J.Flynn, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.
