In depth

Verdict

Cool Cascade has changed stables since running out a fortunate winner at Worcester in July, when Indefinite Hope was third, and both could just need the run but ANNALUNA will be suited by the likely test of stamina as she scored over slightly further on very heavy ground at Exeter and this looks a good opportunity. The lightly-raced Ussee is stepping up in trip for her handicap debut but Brockwell Park will have no problems with the distance having scored between the flags. My Viking Bay's only victory came in a seller while the top pair look poorly handicapped on what they've achieved so far.
