Verdict

AKATARA didn't win for 36 starts but has now completed a double. She hasn't been hammered by the assessor and her young rider's claim means she's still well enough treated to complete a hat-trick. Wontbelongnow might find a few of these too quick as it was soft ground when she scored over 2m6f at Killarney and though Sox's Girl looks well treated compared to her chase rating she is still a maiden after 28 career starts. Alderimli went up 7lb for her victory at Down Royal and she wasn't quite able to cope on her next start at Ballinrobe so won't be helped by another rise in the weights.
