An enquiry was held into the circumstances surrounding members of the ground staff entering the track at the second last hurdle in the home straight on the final circuit of the race after the main field had passed but before Designer Jet (IRE) who was some distance behind had.
Shane Quinlan, the rider of Designer Jet (IRE) and the Clerk of the Course were interviewed.
A report was forwarded to the Head Office of the British Horseracing Authority for further consideration.
An enquiry was held to consider whether Shane Quinlan, the rider of Designer Jet (IRE) which was pulled up before the final hurdle had continued in the race when the gelding was tailed off, appearing to have no more to give.

Quinlan stated that Designer Jet (IRE) had stopped quickly, a fact which he had reported at scales post-race.
The Veterinary Officer stated that a post-race examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities.
Quinlan was suspended for 5 days for continuing in the race when it was contrary to the welfare of the horse.
