- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Impeach (IRE) to wear a hood in the Parade Ring only.
An enquiry was held to consider the manner in which Saatty (IRE) was ridden to the start by Mark Creehan, who appeared to encourage the gelding to go faster than normal.
Crehan stated that this was a request from connections after having received advice from previous jockeys that Saatty (IRE) would benefit from being warmed up due to being a scratchy mover.
After being checked by the Veterinary Surgeon at the start, the gelding was deemed fit to race and the Stewards noted Crehan’s explanation.
The winner, Prospect (GB), appeared to show improved form compared with its previous run at Brighton on 6 August 2021 where the gelding finished sixth of eight, beaten by 9¾ lengths.
It was noted that the representative of Mark Johnston could offer no explanation for Prospect (GB)’s improved form on this occasion.
Following the race, Andrea Atzeni reported that Dark Zeas (IRE), placed sixth, was slowly away and denied a clear run approaching the final furlong and Theodore Ladd reported that Breckland (GB), placed eighth, anticipated the start.
Time 1m. 23.91 secs, which is 6.89 secs faster than the course average on today's going
