In depth

Verdict

Creek Harbour beat Desert Fox over track and trip recently and there is little between that pair while Chookie Dunedin had been threatening over today’s trip before struggling over 7f at Catterick. Gottardo returns to this venue for the first time since winning here in March while both Consequences and RESTLESS ROSE have slipped back down the weights. The latter has won over course and distance in the past and having placed at Windsor on her latest start - it could her turn again.
