The winner, Look Closely (GB), appeared to show improved form compared with its previous run at Newmarket on 5 June 2020 where the gelding finished ninth of twelve, beaten by 15¾ lengths.
Roger Varian’s explanation that Look Closely (GB) had appreciated the return to a less undulating track was noted.
Look Closely (GB) was routine tested.
Leaving the stalls, Mankayan (IRE), placed second, jumped right-handed, causing Media Storm (GB), unplaced, Edinburgh Castle (IRE), placed third, and Sandret (IRE), unplaced, to all be hampered, 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 Mankayan (IRE).
Time 2m. 34.60 secs, which is 2.63 secs slower than the course average on today's going
