Race Verdict

FAREWELLATMIDNIGHT had too many guns for Ballyoliver when running out an impressive winner over this C&D last month and despite a 7lb rise in the ratings, she looks worth sticking with again. A shade below par last time, Phoenix Des Mottes had been in good form previously and is capable of making his presence felt, along with Springfield Raki, who continues to drop down the weights and could be ready to strike soon.

Selection: Farewellatmidnight        Danger: Phoenix Des Mottes        Alternative: Springfield Raki
