In depth

Verdict

CLUIN AINE was having her first start since June when runner-up to the well supported Misty Lane under her 10lb claiming jockey two weeks ago. That was her best race to date and she's been left on the same mark so looks the one to beat. Captains Dilemma was close up behind, though had every chance, but Sweet Annathea wasn't beaten far and didn't get the best of runs so should get closer. Tsar Paul dropped away quickly in the same race and It's almost two years since Badger Daly gained his only success. Gold Falcon is another with a poor strike-rate and though there were signs of a revival last week that was over an extra furlong.
