Verdict
Strong in quantity, but not so in terms of quality. Those towards the top of the market look the horses to concentrate upon in a race where many would appear to hold no chance of winning whatsoever. Tipperary winner The Last Indian looks the most dangerous too predict after an improved showing latest, but at least the handicapper has taken evasive action with an 8lb rise. Both Shawami and No Way Jack should be knocking at the door, but the consistent EMILY SQUARE gets a chance to record a second career success over a trip which appears to suit her best.
  1. Emily Square
  2. Shawami
  3. The Last Indian
