- Stewards Report
Approaching 1½ furlongs out, Sparked (GB), placed second, shifted marginally right-handed, moving Enchanted Night (GB), placed fifth, slightly off its intended line but after viewing a recording of the incident, it was found that no riding offence was involved and that it had not improved the placing of Sparked (GB).
The winner, Admirable Lad (GB), appeared to show improved form compared with its previous run at Leicester on 14 July 2022, where the gelding finished seventh of ten runners, beaten by 8 lengths.
It was noted that, the representative of Chelsea Banham’s could offer no explanation, other than Admirable Lad (GB) may have benefitted from the removal of blinkers, on this occasion.
The gelding was routine tested.
