Verdict

Gopsies Daughter, three times a winner around here, continues her slide down the weights and tackles this trip for the first time since 2017. Her stable companion ADAPT TO DAN showed that his time is near with a very good run behind Scorpion Black at Gowran last week and can reverse the form with Summer's Dream, who finished just in front. Treasure Vale, who finished fourth over 7f at the same meeting, has yet to win while Jenow, a winner for Karl Burke at Chepstow, has been well beaten in both starts for new connections.
