Verdict

This looks a particularly weak affair and it will be disappointing if DORKAS, second three times in as many starts and only beaten a neck at Worcester earlier this month, can't get the better of Lola Galli in what looks a virtual match. David Pipe's mare was third at Worcester in June and is the only other of these to have shown any worthwhile form while the pedigree of newcomer Musselwick Bay is nothing special.
