Verdict

Gush had some decent form as a juvenile but wasn't seen out this season until last month when she showed good pace over 6f behind Via Ballycroy at Dundalk. Whether she'll handle the going is another matter but it won't bother Regal Power, who has been showing up well in similar conditions over 6f and should be better suited by today's trip. Candlehill Girl was in front of Gush at Dundalk last time and looks to be improving though her best form has come on Polytrack. SEPTEMBER LILY should have won by now as she's finished a close runner-up four times. She's only raced twice over this trip and wasn't beaten far each time so she can finally get off the mark.
