- Stewards Report
The winner, Geordie Des Champs (IRE), appeared to show improved form, compared with its previous run at Warwick on 14 March 2021 where the gelding finished sixth of eleven runners, beaten by 45 ½ lengths.
Rebecca Curtis explained that Geordie Des Champs (IRE) was better suited by the Good to Soft going on this occasion, having raced on ground officially described as Soft, Good to Soft in places on its last run.
She further added that the gelding had likely benefited from running off a lower handicap mark today.
Her comments were noted and Geordie Des Champs (IRE) was routine tested.
Following the race, David Bass reported that Bobhopeornohope (IRE), which was pulled up, stopped quickly; the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities.
The Veterinary Officer also reported that Imperial Knight (IRE), placed third, bled from the nose.
Time 5m. 59.20 secs, which is 8.03 secs faster than the course average on today's going
