Verdict

Gemix took the scalp of World Hurdle winner Solwhit in a Grade 1 at Auteuil in June and has to be respected. But all of his form is on soft or heavy ground and he may find today's ground too lively. Salubrious and More Of That step out of handicap company but the latter is open to plenty of further improvement after only three career starts and looks a tough customer. GLENS MELODY has won four of her last five starts, including a Grade 1 at Punchestown in April. She never came off the bridle at the latter track on her reappearance and, though this is a much better race, she must be given a chance to show she is still progressing.
