Verdict

In a race that won't take a great deal of winning the Charles O'Brien-trained MASTERMIND is taken to out-point the hat-trick seeking Song Of The Sky who may find her recent increase in the weights a step too far. Beaten favourite last time out Happy Company and Challow, in first-time visor and battle for the minors.
  1. Mastermind
