The Stewards enquired from A. McCurtin, rider of Miss Tulpar, who fell on the flat in this race. The rider reported that his charge stumbled independently for no apparent reason causing her to fall. Having considered the report and viewed a recording of the race, the Stewards took no further action.

The Stewards received a report from the Clerk of the Scales, Mr. William Fleming, regarding the failure of C.P. McNamara, rider of Athloman Cottage, placed sixth, to weigh in after this race. Evidence was heard from Mr. Fleming and from the rider concerned, who accepted that this was the case. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards disqualified Athloman Cottage from sixth place under the provisions of Rule 230. Furthermore, the Stewards were satisfied that C.P. McNamara was in breach of Rule 227 and having taken his previous record in this regard into account, they suspended him for 2 racedays and ordered that he forfeit his riding fee.
