177E Ladies Day At Sligo 6th Aug. H'cap H'dle

The Stewards requested a report from Mark Michael McNiff, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Urban Dusk, winner, as compared with its recent form.
The trainer reported that this was only the mares second start for him, and her run in Down Royal on 19th June was her first run after a break of 4 months, and she obviously improved for this outing. Also, after the Down Royal race, the rider advised him to run the mare on a sharper, stiffer track and she seemed to be suited by todays uphill finish. He added that he used an in-form 7lb claimer to ride the mare today, and a combination of these factors may have brought about any apparent improvement in form.
Having considered the report, the Stewards noted the explanation offered.
