Verdict

This Listed mares’ bumper contains some progressive types and GRAGEELAGH GIRL has already proved herself at this level finishing second last time out in a race where the winner looked to get first run on her having arguably unfortunate to lose a race at Aintree the time before to the same one that defeated her at Cheltenham. There are plenty of stables in this that need respecting none more so than the Honeyball team and they run two fascinating contenders in Duhallow Gesture and Everlanes. The former makes her first start for the yard but there was a lot to like about her win in Ireland last time while the latter has to improve but scored nicely on her debut and she may well yry have some progress in her. Outofthisworld hasn’t been seen since the spring but her Market Rasen form looks very sound and she adds to the depth of the race. Diamond Gait is another that needs a second glance although her Warwick form hasn’t yet been tested while Strike The Pose is worth checking in the betting coming from a yard that looks to have upgraded their bumper offering this year.
  1. Grageelagh Girl
  2. Duhallow Gesture
  3. Outofthisworld
