The Stewards interviewed Mr P. Power, rider of Game Puppeteer, concerning his use of the whip in the latter stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that Mr P. Power was in breach of R10(3)(f) by using his whip with excessive frequency and R10(4) by failing to give his mount time to respond to the whip and therefore suspended him for 3 racedays having taken his good previous record into consideration.

John J Fitzpatrick, rider of River Patrole, trained by P.Meany, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his mount missed the break and was reluctant to race thereafter.
