In depth

Verdict

A filly in form is usually worth following and SPECIAL MISS won well enough at Sandown in a higher grade on Saturday to suggest she can defy her penalty. Elite Force has been largely disappointing but blinkers could bring about some improvement and Dalasi is interesting now going handicapping after three runs in maidens. She has more scope than Scoppio Del Carro, Ajig and Keep To The Beat.
