Verdict

Erins Gal would prove popular is getting a run from her reserve spot but she needs two to pull out. Rigid Rock has been running very well on Polytrack and has plenty of strong form on Turf including when beating ROSE GARNET over three lengths at Naas in August. However, the runner-up was conceding 4lb that day and will be receiving 13lb here so a reversal of the form looks on the cards and she can take this. Bangalore Diamond is still a maiden but getting closer to that elusive first success from what is now a very lenient mark.
