Verdict

The improving BEST NOT ARGUE can continue her progress here on seasonal debut for new connections following a move from the Joseph Murphy yard. The once 75-rated mare can make the most of this career low mark in this contest. All The Mollies, beaten favourite last time out, Botanical Lady and the solid and consistent Hatton Cross may be waiting to exploit any chinks in the selections armour at the business end of the race.
  1. Best Not Argue
  2. Hatton Cross
  3. All The Mollies
