Verdict

Clubland arrives in very good heart but has never won at this level and is now on his highest ever mark. SUNRISE DANCE has won twice on Turf, both on this track, and though not quite able to keep up the gallop after taking the lead here last week he looks well treated with Connor Beasley's claim taken into account and can gain his third course success. Indego Blues is only 1lb higher than when scoring at Carlisle in June and should be respected though if the predicted rain arrives than stablemate Beau Amadeus, whose one success came on soft ground at Naas, could come into the reckoning. Piddie's Power has been racing in better company but still looks a few pounds high in the weights.
