Verdict

Another impossible-looking handicap to end proceedings. Trader Jack was due to run here last night but Marmalady, Kinglami and Prince Regal all hinted at better to come on their respective reappearances. Conditions should suit the latter but SLIP SLIDING AWAY doesn't look badly treated and can come out on top. He's a tough competitor and a course and distance winner and he wasn't disgraced on his return to action at Windsor when easy to back. Multitask has never won on Turf and it's difficult seeing him put the record straight in this off a new career-high mark but the much-travelled Ask Dad has a chance on his latest third at Naas while Intrinsic still has a bit of scope.
