- Stewards Report
Michael Chapman had obtained prior permission from the BHA to run Fast Deal (GB) with no hind shoes and permission was given for Accrington Stanley (GB) to go early to post.
Scott Dixon was cautioned as Headland (GB) had arrived in the Parade Ring without its declared cheekpieces, which were then located and fitted on the gelding before going to the start.
Black Medick (GB), drawn 4, anticipated the start and accelerated the gate at the same moment as the race had been started.
Being satisfied that it was not caused through a faulty action of the starting stalls, no further action was taken.
Turning into the home straight, Headland (GB), unplaced, edged slightly right-handed, carrying the winner, Grey Fox (IRE), onto Sir Joseph Swan (GB), placed sixth, but after viewing a recording of the incident it was found that no riding offence was involved.
The winner, Grey Fox (IRE), appeared to show improved form compared with its previous run at Newbury on 1 July 2021 where the gelding finished eighth of fifteen, beaten by 11¾ lengths.
Emma Lavelle’s explanation that despite being a previous winner over 1 mile 2 furlongs, Grey Fox (IRE) had appreciated the drop down in trip to 1 mile on this occasion, was noted.
Grey Fox (IRE) was routine tested.
