B.J. Cooper, rider of Railway Adella trained by David Harry Kelly, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount pulled up before the last hurdle having gone lame.

317D Martinstown Opportunity H'cap H'dle

Owing to the low lying elevation of the sun, the Stewards granted permission for the thrid last hurdle to be omitted from this race.

The Stewards interviewed Timothy Doyle, trainer, in relation to the observation in the parade ring that his charge Milestone Miss was fitted with blinkers instead of the declared visor which resulted in the animals withdrawal under rule 194(ii)(c)(i) when a set of visors could not be located. Evidence was heard from the trainer concerned who stated that he thought that he had the correct headgear but now accepted that he was not familiar with the design of a visor. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards fined Timothy Doyle €100 for a breach of rule 194(ii)(b).

John M. Burke, trainer of Benefit Days, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his charge pulled up lame.

P.D. Kennedy, rider of Millerina trained by Michael J. Bowe, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount pulled up lame.

C.D. Maxwell, rider of Lord Rory trained by J.Larkin, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount never travelled and pulled up.
