In depth


A dual winner on the all-weather last year, BATH AND TENNIS was not at her best on her return to action at Haydock. But she still gets the vote having little to beat in this given Global Rose was beaten six lengths when runner-up here last week and Aragon Knight has just the one win in 24 starts. Miss Mo Brown Bear has completely lost her way and failed to beat a rival in her last three starts.

Global Rose (IRE) 33-1 (8-5) Steadied start, pulled hard and held up last, hung left most of way, pushed along and outpaced halfway, headway on outside over 1f out, went 2nd towards finish, no chance with winner, 2nd of 5, 6l behind Show Stealer (9-10) at Bath 6f hcp fll (4) fm in Jul.

Aragon Knight 33-1 (8-13) Steadied start, took keen hold and held up last, some late minor headway on outside in 5th and held when rider dropped reins inside final furlong, 5th of 7, 3 3/4l behind Essaka (9-3) at Bath 5f hcp (5) fm in Jul.

Miss Mo Brown Bear (IRE) 6-1 (9-8) Tracked winner, ridden and weakened over 1f out, last of 7, 17 1/2l behind Dreamboat Annie (9-1) at Leicester 6f hcp (6) gf in Jul.
