Verdict

No surprise to see this handicap divided and there'll be plenty of other similar low-grade contests in the next couple of months. SYNCOPATED LADY is perhaps not the most straightforward young lady but she's in good form, looks on a fair mark and the O'Meara operation continues to thrive. Smart Violetta, a huge danger, has scored twice since mid-July, whilst going close on recent outings on similar ground. Connections look to mean business with Paul Hanagan booked for Ann Duffield's filly. Carlitos Spirit goes to post for the 67th time but remains capable of fair form at this level and can deliver a good account off a career-low mark. Poppy Golightly is worth a second look for a new yard after being absent since the spring.
