Verdict

A competitive opener in which the winner will most likely come from the top end of the handicap. Claire Underwood is an ultra-consistent filly and she proved her stamina over this trip when beating the smooth travelling Desert Ruler over C&D 19-days ago. Although the Jedd O'Keeffe-trained runner could strip fitter for that start (his first for over four months), his task is made more difficult with Richard Fahey electing to utilise a 5lb claimer aboard his filly. However, the preferred option is ELYSEES PALACE. Some might be sceptical with regards his chance having been beaten at odds-on on both of last two starts, but a return to this galloping track promises to suit.
