Verdict

The race may lack some winning substance but plenty of these rivals put up taking performances last time and one who may be worth taking a chance with is TAKE MY HAND. She has been generally a model of consistency this term and gets a 1lb respite for an encouraging race at Sligo last time. That trip looked to be too sharp, so this C&D could prove to be right up her street. Tommy The Hat has similarly been eased but showed great promise in near-unraceable conditions last time out and this is expected to suit better, while the likes of Jm Barrie and Sweet Justice tend to run up to their marks each time and are more trustworthy than others in a race which lacks some depth to it.
  1. Take My Hand
  2. Tommy The Hat
