- Stewards Report
Permission was given for Giovanni Change (FR) to go to post early.
Prior to this race, the Stewards raised a query with Philip Kirby, the trainer of Machiavelli (GB) into the reasons why he was running the gelding here at Wetherby on going officially described as Soft, having reported that Machiavelli (GB) was unsuited by the Good to Soft, Soft in places going and would prefer a quicker surface on its last run at Market Rasen on 26 December 2019.
The trainer’s representative stated that, in their opinion, the bends were riding particularly loose at Market Rasen and given that the gelding has previously run well on Soft ground they were happy for the gelding to take its chance today.
Following the race, the Veterinary Officer reported that Caroline's Quest (IRE), unplaced, lost its left fore shoe.
Time 4m. 15.80 secs, which is 8.81 secs slower than the course average on today's going
