In depth

Verdict

A poor nursery which looks to rest between the joint top weights, ARCTIC FLOWER and Romancingthestone. The former gets the nod as she didn't fare badly on her Polytrack debut at Kempton and is 2lb lower here. This surface may be too quick for Stan Moore's filly as her best efforts have come on Fibresand and soft ground but she till makes more appeal than Derek Shaw's pair and Riverboat Lady.
