The Stewards requested a report from J.R. Hagan, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Badger Daly, placed first, as compared with its recent form. The trainer reported that his charge had not been finishing his races well and consequently had a palate operation since his penultimate run. He was subsequently given a break before his recent run at the Curragh, when staying on well. He added that the horse returned to form today having dropped to his previous winning mark. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

The Stewards interviewed Ann Grace,representing Denis Gerard Hogan, trainer of Neatly Put (GB),and Conor Hoban, rider, concerning the conduct of this horse prior to this race and mindful of his behaviour at Cork last weekend. Evidence was heard from the trainers representative who stated that the horse behaves well at home but can be a bit excitable and that perhaps the application of a hood the next day may help her charge. Evidence was also heard from the rider concerned. Having considered the evidence the stewards noted the explanations but ordered that the horse be recertified before being declared to run from stalls again. Furthermore the trainer was reminded, through his representative that any re-occurrence of this behaviour may render his charge liable for suspension.
