Verdict

SALLY GAP ran well over 7f here in September with similar underfoot conditions. She looked like a step back to 6f would be in her favour there (not for the first time) and everything looks set for her to go well with leading jockey booked. Famous Pearl looks capable of winning a race of this nature too but she probably wouldn't want it too soft and there is every chance the going will end up heavy with more rain forecast. This is a very different test for Motahassen but he represents top connections so should be a good reason and he has showed hints of ability.
