In depth

Verdict

The unexposed LOOK SURPRISED has plenty going for her and is open to further progress in an ordinary race. Dandilion is consistent and is still finding her feet on turf. Pat Cosgrave's mount is taken to pose a bigger threat than Powerful Dream , who likes this course but faces an acid test under top weight.
