In depth

Verdict

APACHE GLORY completed a double on Turf in the summer of 2011 but she's been mainly confined to the Polytrack subsequently. She's in fine form and, having dropped to a lowly mark, is expected to complete a hat-trick after victories at Wolverhampton and Lingfield. The veteran Flying Applause is capable of gaining his 12th career success soon and showed with a fine effort behind Carragold at Newcastle that his turn isn't far away. Rockweiller is well handicapped and there looked to be the spark of a revival at Doncaster while Saint Thomas' last victory was here in August on fast ground and he's only 1lb higher.
