STEWARDS' REPORT
 
Race 1 - 1:45pm G3 GASKELLS HANDICAP HURDLE
NESTOR PARK (FR) wore earplugs which were removed at the start. The Starter reported that GUNFLEET (IRE), unplaced, was keen to post and overshot the start and THECLOCKISTICKING (IRE), placed fifth, caught the running rail as it exited the canter down. Having been examined by the Veterinary Surgeon at the Start, both geldings were deemed fit to race. The performance of POKER PLAY (FR) which was pulled up, was considered. David Pipe's explanation that the gelding was never travelling on the Good to Soft, Good in places going was noted. Following the race, Henry Brooke reported that KNOCK HOUSE (IRE), unplaced, hung right throughout and Nico de Boinville reported that NESTOR PARK (FR), which was pulled up, lost its action; the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities. Jonjo O'Neill reported that FORZA MILAN (IRE), which was pulled up, was unsuited by the sharp track on this occasion. The Veterinary Officer further reported that the winner, AUX PTITS SOINS (FR) and GUNFLEET (IRE), unplaced, were treated for post-race heat stress and BURBANK (IRE) placed fourth, lost its right fore shoe.
 
Race 2 - 2:25pm G1 BETWAY MERSEY NOVICES' HURDLE
ANGELS BREATH (IRE) wore earplugs which were removed at the start. On the bend after the winning post going onto the final circuit, KATESON, placed seventh, edged slightly left, crowding UMBRIGADO (IRE), placed sixth, onto CHOSEN MATE (IRE), placed fifth, tightening ONE FOR ROSIE, which dead heated for third, on the rail but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved. Following the race, Nico de Boinville reported that ANGELS BREATH (IRE), which dead heated for third, ran too freely and the Veterinary Officer reported that COLONEL CUSTARD (IRE), was treated for post-race heat stress.
 
Race 3 - 3:00pm G1 DOOM BAR MAGHULL NOVICES' CHASE
The Veterinary Officer reported that Kayley Woollacott, the trainer of LALOR (GER), was in possession of NAF Pink Powder and Clean Wind. The trainer, an employee of the trainer, the BHA Investigating Officer and the Veterinary Officer were interviewed. Being satisfied that the gelding had received only normal food and water by mouth on the day of racing, the Stewards allowed LALOR (GER) to run, and ordered the gelding to be routine tested. They further confiscated the substance, ordered that it should be tested, and referred the matter to the Head Office of the British Horseracing Authority. Following the race, Richard Johnson reported that LALOR (GER), placed sixth of seven, was never travelling.
 
Race 4 - 3:40pm G1 RYANAIR STAYERS HURDLE
Having reviewed recordings of the false start, the Starters were satisfied that no riders should be reported for contravening the starting procedures. APPLE'S JADE (FR), placed third, did not enter the Winner's Enclosure on Veterinary advice. Approaching the line, ROKSANA (IRE), placed second, edged left bumping the winner IF THE CAP FITS (IRE), twice but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved. Jack Kennedy, the rider of APPLE'S JADE (FR) was suspended for 4 days for using his whip in the incorrect place in the closing stages. Following the race, Thomas Dowson reported that NAUTICAL NITWIT (IRE), unplaced, was never travelling.
 
Race 5 - 4:20pm G3 BETWAY HANDICAP CHASE
Permission was given for SPRINGTOWN LAKE (IRE) to wear a hood in the Parade Ring only and WILLIE BOY (IRE) wore earplugs which were removed at the start. After jumping the second last fence, the saddle slipped on GOLD OPERA (IRE), placed fourth, and the gelding shifted right hampering the winner, KILDISART (IRE), but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved. An enquiry was held to consider interference on the bend going into the second circuit when MISTER MALARKEY, placed second, ridden by Jonjo O'Neill Jr. interfered with SPRINGTOWN LAKE (IRE), which was later pulled up, ridden by Richard Johnson, which interfered with REIKERS ISLAND (IRE), which was later pulled up, ridden by Tom O'Brien, which in turn caused interference to OLDGRANGEWOOD, placed third, ridden by Harry Skelton. O'Neill Jr. was suspended for 4 days for allowing his mount to drift left towards the rail when not clear of SPRINGTOWN LAKE (IRE) crowding that runner onto REIKERS ISLAND (IRE) which was badly tightened for room and stumbled, and also causing OLDGRANGEWOOD to be crowded against the rail. Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that WILLIE BOY (IRE), placed sixth, finished lame on its right fore. The Veterinary Officer further reported that MISTER MALARKY, placed second, lost its right hind shoe, DEBECE, unplaced, lost its left fore shoe, POLYDORA (IRE), unplaced, lost its right fore shoe and RED GIANT, which was pulled up, lost its left hind shoe.
 
Race 6 - 5:15pm G3 RANDOX HEALTH GRAND NATIONAL
Permission was given for SINGELFARMPAYMENT to be mounted in the pre-parade ring prior to entering the parade ring. PLEASANT COMPANY (IRE), RAMSES DE TEILLEE (FR) and UP FOR REVIEW (IRE) wore earplugs throughout the race and VALTOR (FR), ROCK THE KASBAH (IRE) and TEA FOR TWO wore earplugs which were removed at the start. Having reviewed recordings of the start, the Starters were satisfied that no riders should be reported for contravening the starting procedures. Following the race, the representative of LAKE VIEW LAD (IRE), which was pulled up, reported that the gelding was unsuited by the Good to Soft, Soft in places going and would prefer a softer surface. The Veterinary Officer reported that BLOW BY BLOW (IRE), which was pulled up, finished lame on its right fore and ULTRAGOLD (FR), unplaced, finished lame on its right fore. David Noonan reported that his rein snapped on RAMSES DE TEILLE (FR), and so he pulled up; the rein was inspected and as it was found to be in a serviceable condition, no further action was taken.
 
Race 7 - 6:20pm PINSENT MASONS HANDICAP HURDLE
Permission was given for LOCKER ROOM TALK (IRE) and BEENO (IRE) to go early to post and FLASHING GLANCE wore earplugs which were removed at the start. Mr. J.J.
