Verdict

Ponmeword has rarely encountered ground as fast as this and looks worth opposing with his big weight. Mount Sion showed that these conditions hold no fears with a battling success at Downpatrick but this is much tougher and Chrisdonlady, who was clear when falling at the eighth in that event, may reverse the form. ROSSA PARKS has been running well enough from this sort of mark to earn the vote in a race where there are question marks about many of her rivals.
