Verdict

Entrapping is proving hard to win with and Gabrial The Duke isn't improving while it took Poetic Verse 12 attempts and a switch back to the Fibresand to get off the mark and she appears to reserve her best for that surface. CLOSE TOGETHER won here in October and her run behind Precision Strike over track and trip on her return from a break suggests she's handicapped to win this. Rosie Future is tried in a hood after her latest third at Wolverhampton but Sand Grouse looks a better option trying a new trip, though looks held by the selection on a line through Precision Strike.
