Verdict

Lucematic was conceding 7lb to Detour Ahead when more than five lengths behind Jennie Candlish's charge over a similar trip at Wetherby in December but the pair meet on level terms today and there shouldn't be much between them. Both, however, will have their work cut out to beat HIDDEN IDENTITY. Tim Vaughan compensates for her double penalty by putting up a 10lb claimer and the ex-Irish mare can get back to winning ways now running over her best trip again. Galway Gem has a predominantly Flat pedigree so may not be suited by today's conditions.
