- Stewards Report
Everything For You (IRE) was kicked by Gold Clermont (FR) at the start.
Having been examined by a Veterinary Surgeon, the gelding was deemed fit to race.
The winner, Pour Une Raison (FR), appeared to show improved form, compared with its previous run at Taunton on 15 March 2021, where the gelding finished seventh of sixteen, beaten by 30 lengths.
Nick Mitchell explained that Pour Une Raison (FR) appreciated the Good ground on this occasion and benefitted from a step up in trip to 3 miles 2 furlongs and the first-time application of a visor.
The gelding was routine tested.
The performance of Gold Clermont (FR), which started joint-favourite and finished sixth of eight finishers, was considered.
Tom Lacey’s representative explained that the mare was unsuited by the going, which was officially described as Good on this occasion, and would prefer a slower surface.
Following the race, Bryan Carver reported that One For Dunstan (IRE), which was pulled up, stopped quickly and the Veterinary Officer reported that a post-race examination of the gelding failed to reveal any abnormalities.
The Veterinary Officer also reported that Minella Style (IRE), which was pulled up, lost its right fore shoe.
Time 6m. 29.90 secs, which is 5.29 secs slower than the course average on today's going
