Verdict

Big Bad Lily has scored over 5f here on fast ground and won't mind today's conditions as she won on soft going at Navan, though she rarely tackles this trip. Gatamalata was well beaten in this a year ago and her last success was over a mile and though Apache Gold led at this trip when a close third over 7f at the Curragh on Tuesday, he's never run over a trip this short in 21 starts. More Questions has more basic speed than most of these and isn't too badly treated though a high draw isn't a help so the tentative vote in a wide-open contest goes to SEPTEMBER LILY, who is a real soft-ground specialist with a victory on this track to her credit.
