The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Lake Field, trained by Noel Brett, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

The Stewards enquired into the running and riding of Lake Field, ridden by D.G. Hogan, and trained by Noel Brett. Evidence was heard from the trainers representative and rider concerned. Pat Brett, authorised representative for Noel Brett, trainer, stated that this animal was having his second race today having disappointed on his debut at Gowran Park when jumping poorly throughout. Today he instructed the rider to ride the animal close to the pace, make the best of his way home and do not be excessive with the whip as this animal was a bridle horse. He was of the opinion that his animal jumped moderately today and gave a heave after the turn into the straight before finishing in his best possible placing. He was satisfied with the ride. D.G. Hogan,rider,stated that he jumped off a bit handier than expected and again today his mount jumped poorly. He added that the animal emptied from before the turn into the straight and from that point he held him together for one final attempt to pass the fourth placed horse but was unable to do so from the final hurdle. He expressed an opinion that apart from the first three placed horses that this race was possibly a weak contest and his own mount did his best when on the bridle. The Stewards also received a report from the Turf Club Veterinary Officer who stated that Lake Field was post race normal. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards noted the explanations offered and further advised D.G. Hogan to make a greater effort in his riding in the future.
