Verdict

The speedy An Mhi has only run once over this trip in 22 starts but generally sets the pace and should be competitive despite his big weight. Bubbly Bellini hasn't had the breaks in his last two starts and though both were over further he has performed well over the C&D in the past and should go close here. He holds the only C&D winner in the line-up, Stones Peak, on their run at Sligo in August though that was over 7f and the latter is better over today's trip. LAKE WANAKA has been sent to the UK for a couple of low-grade handicaps and looked an improver when just touched off by Steel Rain at Ffos Las. She's one of the few here with scope and can gain her first success.
