The Stewards enquired into the running and riding of Be My Dan, ridden by J.J. Slevin, and trained by David M.O'Brien. Evidence was heard from the rider and trainer concerned. J.J. Slevin, stated that his instructions were to drop in, take his time and ride his mount to get the trip. He said his mount is a difficult ride and was very unbalanced through out, was checked in running and did not act on the ground. He said his mount stayed on in the closing stages past tired horses. David M.O'Brien, confirmed the instructions given and expressed his satisfaction with the ride. He said his charge has shown plenty of ability at home and in the past when winning a bumper, but confirmed that he can be a difficult ride and was unsure how he would handle the trip. The Stewards also received a report from the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer who stated that Be My Dan was found to be post race normal. Samples were taken for analysis. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards noted the explanations of both the trainer and rider in relation to the running and riding of Be My Dan, but were of the opinion that J.J. Slevin was in breach of Rule 213 in that he had failed to report at the first instance, something which may have affected the running of his mount in a race. Having taken his previous record in this regard into account, the Stewards cautioned J. J. Slevin.

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined Be My Dan, trained by David M.O'Brien, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

Treacy, placed second and Ashjan (GB), ridden by S.W. Flanagan, placed third, where it appeared S.W. Flanagan ran short of room. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards made no alterations to the Judges placings. They were, however of the opinion that R.P. Treacy was in breach of Rule 214 in that he had ridden carelessly and having considered his record, they suspended him for 2 racedays.
