Verdict

Jan Steen doesn't have a lot of miles on the clock and deserves respect in this field on the back of a solid try at Gowran Park over this trip in July, while last-time-out Ayr winner Harry Speed ought to be capable of having a says despite the extra 5lb on board. Accladora may struggle to follow-up her shock Bellewstown win, with the likes of Path Of Silver and Greenpanda more likely to give their running but POWER OF TEN made a decent attempt from the front last time at Bellewstown and might be able to get the job done now over this shorter trip.
