The Stewards enquired into possible interference about one furlong from the finish involving Boothen Boy, ridden by Mr J.J. Codd, placed fifth and Belle Metal, ridden by Mr P.W. Mullins, placed first, where it appeared that Belle Metal tightened Boothen Boy who was racing close to the running rail. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Mr J.J. Codd stated that Belle Metal came in through greeness when she hit the front. Mr P.W. Mullins stated that he tried his best to keep his mount straight but she was tired on the very heavy ground. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards made no alteration to the Judges placings. They were,however,of the opinion that Mr P.W. Mullins had ridden carelessly this being a breach of Rule 214. Having taken his previous record into consideration, the Stewards cautioned Mr P.W. Mullins on this occasion. Mr M.F. O'Donoghue absented himself from this enquiry and was replaced by Mr Michael Daly.
