Verdict

Lahaag won a Yarmouth maiden in June but that form is nothing special and, though unexposed, he's been done no favours by the handicapper here. Border Legend looks more interesting as he was given plenty to do when third at Sandown last month and has the beating of Dixie's Dream on that run. He has more scope than the likes of Magic Destiny and Oddysey but Emman Bee returned to form at Newmarket last time, though this trip has stretched her in the past. ASCRIPTION only had a head to spare over the second when getting off the mark at Haydock and is 8lb higher here. However, the first two pulled well clear of the remainder so the form may be decent and Ed Dunlop's Dansili colt can score again with more improvement likely.
