Verdict

It might just be worth chancing the mare CATCHY LASS for the finale. She is one of a number that finished behind Ligeti here a fortnight ago and are re-opposing now. She made fairly decent progress in the home straight before essentially being left with nowhere to go in the final 200 yards, runs off the same mark now and has an additional claim in her favour, so it's fair to say she has a chance. Ligeti loves it here and will likely be involved up 3lb on that win, though runner-up Dancing Doll may reverse the placings now. Nearly Famous is also in mix on that form along with Magen's Moon. Bold Knight and Thunder Speed are worth paying attention to in the betting.
