New Look (FR), trained by Lisa Williamson, finished third at Newcastle the previous day.
Having been examined by the Veterinary Officer, the gelding was deemed fit to race.
Shortly after the start, Black Medick (GB), which dead-heated for first, lugged right, carrying Potters Question (GB), placed seventh, across the running of Mabaady (GB), unplaced, which was checked, but after viewing a recording of the incident it was found that no riding offence was involved and that it had not improved the placings of either Black Medick (GB) or Potters Question (GB).
Elisha Whittington, the rider of New Look (FR), placed fourth, was suspended for 4 days for using her whip above the permitted level from inside 1½ furlongs out and using her whip in the incorrect place on the run to the line.
Black Medick (GB), which dead-heated for first, appeared to show an improvement in form compared with its previous run at Lingfield Park on 15 October 2020, where the filly finished last of twelve, beaten 17 lengths.
Laura Mongan’s representative explained that Black Medick (GB) was caught wide on its previous run at Lingfield Park over 1 mile 2 furlongs and appeared to benefit from the drop back in trip to 1 mile ½ a furlong and the first-time application of cheekpieces on this occasion.
The filly was routine tested.
