The Stewards enquired into an incident involving Shake It Up, ridden by A.E. Lynch, Subtle Ben, ridden by K.C. Sexton, Vincent Row, ridden by B.J. Geraghty and Zuccotti Park, ridden by G.N. Fox, where it appeared Vincent Row came down on the flat and Shake It Up unseated its rider. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards felt that due to the fact that the scout camera was incorrectly positioned they had insufficient video evidence to apportion blame to any rider and took no further action.

The Stewards interviewed A.P. Crowe, rider of Illusion Of Time, concerning his use of the whip in closing stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards found A.P. Crowe in breach of Regulation 10 3. (b) and having taken his good record in this regard into account the Stewards severely cautioned him.
