Gary Paul Halpin, rider of First Friday, trained by Paul Hennessy, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount clipped heels and stumbled after the winning post on the first circuit when picking up the bit having lost ground.

D. O'Brien, rider of Duarte Fernandes (USA), trained by A.P.O'Brien, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount was hanging to the right when he clipped heels and fell on the final bend. He also felt that the horse in front of him had been edging out slightly but in his opinion the fall was accidental and no fault of any other rider.

C.J. Elliott, rider of Lastgirlstanding, trained by Shane Nolan, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount was unavoidably brought down by the faller Duarte Fernandes (USA).

The Stewards received a report from the Clerk of the Scales, W. Fleming, that L.P. Dempsey, rider of Stoichkhov, had weighed in at 1.8lbs overweight. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned who stated that he had no difficulty in doing the weight but had a drink of water after weighing out. He showed his equipment to the Stewards which included a mounted saddle and a small lead cloth. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that L.P. Dempsey was in breach of Rule 231 and suspended him for 1 raceday.

The Stewards requested a report from Adrian Paul Keatley, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Carraroe Flyer, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that his charge won over 1 mile on soft ground at Ayr 9th June before returning to Hamilton to run on 18th June which he felt was too soon after the Ayr run. He added that the last day at Roscommon his charge was struggling over the 7 furlong trip in fast ground and today he upped his distance to 1mile 3 furlongs which allowed him to race at a gallop suitable to him. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

The Stewards requested a report from Andrew Heffernan, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Cin Cin, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that the application of cheek pieces for the first time on the advice of N.G McCullagh, Jockey, had a significant bearing on the improved run. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Attraction Ticket (GB), trained by Peter Fahey, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be clinically abnormal post race.

W.J. Lee, rider of Attraction Ticket (GB) trained by Peter Fahey, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount never travelled and stopped quickly.
