Verdict

You'd get a very short price on this going to one of the British raiders and it is Jeremy Noseda's flying filly FLEETING SPIRIT who can prevail at the expense of Borderlescott. The four-year-old was an impressive winner of the July Cup despite jinking left and right in the closing stages and subsequently she burned off all bar Regal Parade in the Haydock Sprint Cup. She tired in the good to soft ground that day and the unusually fast conditions for the Abbaye are right in her favour. She might just have too much toe for the consistent Borderlescott who is sure to run his race again.
