- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Inchicore (IRE) to go early to post wearing a red hood and to be mounted on the chute.
Prior to this race, Andrew Balding was asked to explain the reason why he was running Arctic Vega (GB) here at Newbury on going described as Good, having reported that the gelding would prefer softer than Good following its run at Doncaster on 27 March 2021.
The Stewards noted Balding’s explanation that as the ground is well watered today he wanted to try running Arctic Vega (GB) over 1m 2f to ascertain if the Going was the sole reason for the poor run last time out.
Arctic Vega (GB) ran free to post.
Having been checked by the Veterinary Surgeon at the start, the gelding was deemed fit to race.
Following the race, Martin Dwyer reported that Tindrum (GB), unplaced, stopped quickly and the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities.
Hollie Doyle reported that Ajax Tavern (GB), unplaced, stopped quickly and the Veterinary Officer reported that a post- race examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities.
