Verdict

A moderate handicap and tough to fathom. Pirate Cove has shown nothing but makes her handicap debut and with her yard in tremendous form shouldn't be dismissed. Gold Falcon is one of just two course and distance winners but he's 8lb higher than his latest success and has been struggling at the weights. Six Silver Lane is the other with a track and trip victory to his credit but he couldn't handle a 7lb rise for last month's success on a subsequent visit. He had FLARING FORTH and Trans City behind when successful but the latter is better on Turf so it's the former who is handed the vote as she was staying on nicely and has since done even better behind Cheers Buddy. Doux Douce is still a maiden and has climbed the weights without winning and though Maal has won eight races on Turf he's still winless after ten attempts on the all-weather.
