In depth

Verdict

Gopsies Daughter loves it around here having won three times on the track including her last two starts. However, she only just beat Verhoyen last week and the latter is 6lb better off so should reverse the places. SHORE STEP is another who goes well here and though his track double in June was completed over 6f he is a front-runner who won't be inconvenienced by dropping to the minimum. He's won from higher marks than this and can lead them a merry dance. Lost Treasure has only had two runs and makes his handicap debut after landing a 6f maiden here last week while Dandyman Port is just 3lb higher after her Tipperary victory where she came with a powerful late burst. Miss Power is well up to this though hasn't been seen since last July.
