The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the closing stages involving Bush Pilot, ridden by P.J. Smullen, placed second and Miss Gally Rio, ridden by T.P. Madden, placed first, where it appeared Miss Gally Rio drifted towards Bush Pilot. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards made no alteration to the Judges placings. They did, however, advise T.P. Madden to ride with more care. W. McCreery, trainer of Miss Gally Rio, accompanied Apprentice Jockey T.P. Madden at this enquiry. Mrs T.K. Cooper absented herself from this enquiry.

The Stewards enquired into an incident about two furlongs from the finish involving Bush Pilot, ridden by P.J. Smullen, placed second, Russian Roulette, ridden by F.M. Berry, unplaced and Miss Gally Rio, ridden by T.P. Madden, placed first, where it appeared Russian Roulette was squeezed for room and checked. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that T.P. Madden had caused the incident by riding carelessly and suspended him for 1 raceday having taken his inexperience into consideration. W.McCreery, trainer of Miss Gally Rio, accompanied Apprentice Jockey T.P. Madden at this enquiry. Mrs T.K. Cooper absented herself from this enquiry.

W.J. Lee, rider of Love The Feeling, trained by W. McCreery, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount jumped slowly out of stalls, was flatfooted when the pace quickened but stayed on in the closing stages.
