Verdict

Plenty arrive in form for this contest and despite the rise in the weights NIKEANDNEMESIS can complete the hat trick. HARVEST BOW is a big threat providing she copes with this better ground than at Gowran on Monday while FACETHEPUCKOUT should be competitive despite his big weight.
  1. Nikeandnemesis
  2. Harvest Bow
  3. Facethepuckout
