Verdict

An open-looking closing contest which can go the way of GREGORY'S GIFT, who returned to form after 5 months off when finishing third over C&D last month and should come on from that outing here. Praying Mantis heads the dangers from her basement mark having stepped up on her reappearance at Tipperary just over a fortnight ago, ahead of Here's Hoping and Duquesa Beach.
