Verdict

SALLY'S SWANSONG got her nose in front in the closing stages to land a C&D double last month and is worth sticking with in her current frame of mind. Choice Pearl, Gran Canaria Queen and Speedyfix all have something to find with Eric Alston's mare on recent running but Ballinargh Girl should be taking advantage of her tumble down the weights soon. Funcheon Vale can be given a chance off his current mark as well and the selection's stablemate Ballarina could also figure on her best form.
