Verdict

ALONG CAME CASEY had few problems landing a Listed contest at Gowran a couple of weeks ago when Say finished third, Aloof fourth and Hanky Panky fifth. It's difficult to imagine any of the beaten horses reversing the form and Dermot Weld's mare should score again. Bunairgead ran well behind Venus De Milo at Naas in June and Cork earlier this month but this looks tougher and Pearl Of Africa is stepping out of handicap company with plenty to find on official ratings.
