Verdict

Both MERYEMS WAY and Gatsby Cap are thriving, but the former may be slightly better suited by this trip, and is taken to gain a third win of the season at the expense of Monday's Gowran winner. Feather Step is a well-bred handicap debutante in excellent hands, and is one to note in the betting for signs of confidence, a comment which applies also to A Step Too Far.
  1. Meryems Way
