RACE (CLASS 5) (DIV I) Permission was given for Sweet Flora (IRE) to go early to post.
The winner, Lady Babs (GB), appeared to show improved form compared with its previous run over hurdles at Musselburgh on 21 December 2020, where the mare finished ninth of fifteen, beaten by 60½ lengths on Good to Soft ground.
Andrew Crook’s explanation that Lady Babs (GB) appreciated the Good ground on this occasion and the drop in trip from 2 miles and 4 furlongs to 2 miles and ½ furlong on this occasion, was noted.
The mare was routine tested.
Following the race, Alison Johnson reported that Sweet Flora (IRE), which was pulled up before the second-last hurdle, hung left-handed throughout and the Veterinary Officer reported that the mare finished lame on its right-hind.
Time 4m. 14.02 secs, which is 3.39 secs slower than the course average on today's going
