Bearskin may struggle to confirm Hamilton running last week with Chookie's Lass on worse terms. The quicker ground should also help Keith Dalgleish's filly but the yard also run KIRTLING BELLE. She didn't put her best foot forward over 5f here last time but can be excused an off-day as her earlier form entitles her to the utmost respect in this company. Razin' Hell won in a lesser grade at Ffos Las last month but that was the first time he had finished in the frame on Turf.
Kirtling Belle 3-1 (9-8) Chased leaders, effort over 1f out, soon weakened, 6th of 7, 6l behind Slim Chance (9-5) at Carlisle 5f hcp 0-70 (5) gf in Jul.
Bearskin (IRE) 9-4fav (9-4) In touch centre, ridden inside final 2f, stayed on well under pressure inside final furlong, led towards finish, won at Hamilton 6f 3yo hcp 0-65 (6) gs beating Sketch Map (8-7) by 3/4l, 10 ran.
Razin' Hell 7-1 (9-2) Made all, ridden and hung right over 1f out, continued to hang right under pressure inside final furlong, kept on, won at Ffos Las 6f 3yo hcp 0-60 (6) gf in Jul beating Ignight (8-2) by 1 1/2l, 8 ran.
Chookie's Lass 16-1 (9-7) In touch centre, effort 2f out, ridden to lead narrowly inside final furlong, kept on, headed and no extra in 3rd towards finish, 3rd of 10, 1l behind Bearskin (9-4) at Hamilton 6f 3yo hcp 0-65 (6) gs.
