Verdict

There'll be a maximum field for this but few look to have much chance on what they've shown so far. Botanical Lady is trying to defy a penalty picked up after scoring at the Galway Festival. Leigh Roche again takes off 3lb so she must be respected but MILLINGTON appears to be making giant strides and, though dropping back a furlong after last month course victory, can go in again - his yard landed this a couple of years ago. Snap Click was only beaten a short-head over a mile here in June and hasn't been beaten far in a couple of subsequent starts so also warrants a close look while Mr Moondance could go well if getting a run from his reserve spot.
