Verdict

Winning point-to-pointer and chaser He Knows My Name is on a 23lb lower mark over hurdles but has shown very little while Shipwreck, who won over the course and distance by 10 lengths in June, has shown nothing like that form subsequently. Mash Potato has been beaten in sellers recently so this can go to HOLY MOTIVATION. Gordon Elliott's mare showed improved form when stepping up to 3m on her handicap debut at Tipperary where she led before the last so this slightly shorter trip should be to her taste. Winning point-to-pointer Court Adjourned ran a bit better here a fortnight ago but is 0-19 under Rules.
