Verdict

EREBUS looks to have turned the corner and if able to handle this slower surface, looks to have an obvious chance of getting into the winners enclosure again. Spinning Spirit was a little below par at Hamilton though did not seem to have too many issues with a similar surface earlier on in the season. Fair Bunny is respected as a course and distance winner despite having to race from 1lb out of the handicap. Coin From Heaven has tended to put up her better performances at this time of the season in the past and the Invincible Spirit filly is worthy of closer inspection in the market beforehand. Red Scintilla has few excuses on the going but we would have liked to have seen more winners from her yard.
