Verdict

Solar Sail has only run once here when scoring over the C&D in October but has an 8lb rise to contend with on her return to action. Sparring Partner has been put up 4lb for his second to Darraghs Day here last month which appears harsh as he's still a maiden. Five Two ran over hurdles earlier in the month but his best recent effort came over this C&D when runner-up to Casbah Rock. A repeat effort would see him difficult to beat but JOHNNYS LEGACY may have his measure. David Marnane's charge has had very little experience but looked one to follow when staying on stoutly over a mile here last time and should have no problems with the extra quarter-mile.
