Verdict

Official ratings suggest SISTER SLEW is very well in under the race conditions and Joseph O'Brien is an eye-catching booking. Gordon Elliott's charge hasn't been in the best of form but a return to anything like her best should suffice. Curl Cat has the advantage of a victory on this track but is another who hasn't been running well unlike Gold Falcon, who performed with credit in a Dundalk handicap in July. He has quite a bit to find while Snoqualmie Chief has run two poor races over hurdles after landing a novices' handicap at Perth.
