Verdict

Those at the bottom of the weights could be worth focusing on, with PASSIONAL getting to vote to follow up from her C&D victory 5 weeks ago and in the process provide Marco Ghiani with a fourth win on the filly. Seneca Chief has seemingly been revitalised with the hood left off recently so he's taken to chase the selection home, ahead of Nibras Again and Soul Seeker.

  1. PASSIONAL
  2. SENECA CHIEF
  3. NIBRAS AGAIN
