The winner Echo Watt (FR), appeared to show improved form, compared with its previous run at Uttoxeter on 8 December 2020 where the gelding finished seventh of nine runners, beaten by 33 lengths.
Richard Hobson explained that the gelding had stripped fitter for its reappearance after a 275-day break and had further appreciated the Heavy going on this occasion.
His explanation was noted.
Following the race, Robert Walford reported that Enry Iggins (GB), which started favourite and was pulled up, had made a respiratory noise.
The Veterinary Officer reported that Talktomenow (GB), placed second, lost its left-fore shoe.
