Verdict
The Di Love-trained HIDDEN SPARK should not be forgotten about at the bottom of the card and can get back to winning ways here following a win at Fairyhouse in July. The three-year-old has continued to run well in defeat in large fields since and can bag a second career win of her career at the expense of the solid and consistent, Kudbegood, the Gigginstown House Stud-owned Luminent and Sarah Jessica, winner last time out at Ffos Las earlier this month. Top weight, Acari and the Jim Bolger-trained, Make Me Sway are not easily discounted.
  1. Hidden Spark
  2. Kudbegood
