Verdict

Roy's Legacy made just about all the running to score at Doncaster last week but incurred the inevitable 6lb rise in the weights and, though probably well drawn here in stall 12, will have plenty of competition for the lead as Missile Attack, Jebel Tara and Dragon Spirit also like to race at the head of affairs. Distant Sun has been a good servant to connections but has run here 13 times without managing to get his head in front while Amno Dancer is getting no closer to breaking his duck, though still looks the best of Ian Semple's four-strong team. Irish Girls Spirit must go close, however, after another solid effort behind Piste at Catterick but we just prefer FINDHORNBAY who may well be suited by the drop back to 5f and is less exposed than most of these.
