In depth

Verdict

Napinda was headed inside the closing stages by Poetic Verse when sent off 25/1 here during the week. There's no chance she'll start anywhere near that price today as she beat Shearian three lengths with Una Bella Cosa tailed off. Phillip McBride's filly cannot be ignored but a chance is taken that DARKEST NIGHT will handle the surface. He's won his last couple of starts at Lingfield and has a penalty to carry but despite racing in ostensibly the same grade today, this is much less competitive and he gets the nod to land a hat-trick.
