Verdict

DARKDESERTHIGHWAY proved friendless in the betting (sent off at 66/1) but managed to get the job done in ready fashion when landing a C&D handicap 10 days ago. Her rider's claim offsets most of her subsequent weight rise, and given her low-mileage profile, she may well be up to following up. Pretty Smart, Fine Distraction and veteran Doonard Prince head up the dangers.

  1. DARKDESERTHIGHWAY (IRE)
  2. PRETTY SMART (IRE)
  3. FINE DISTRACTION (IRE)
