Verdict

An Chulainn has only won once and that was on Polytrack and she's also disappointed on several occasions at this sort of level. LUNAR SPIRIT is improving rapidly and it's a surprise that she's only been raised 4lb for her comfortable Pontefract success so she gets the verdict. Go Sakhee has been a beaten favourite on his two latest starts after scoring at Windsor but Mariners Moon has faded over 1m4f the last twice and this looks his optimum trip.
