A very moderate affair which won't take much winning. Graham Lee is ending the season with winners aplenty and can steer BARATHEA DANCER to a first victory in 22 starts. Gaye Kelleway's filly has finished second on five occasions in better company than this. Auto Mac wouldn't be far away on his best form while Petrocelli was placed in handicaps at Carlisle and Newcastle in August. Gangsterbanksters is probably the pick of the three-year-olds but that's not saying much.
