Verdict

SANTA ANNA never threatened the winner when third at Perth but it was a long way back to the fourth and she may figure with a conditional’s allowance helping her cause today. Creasted Court was a bit of a disappointment at Tramore last time having posted a decent effort at Wexford earlier and she gets a change of headgear while Arizengo is better than his latest run suggests. Mark McNiff sent out the winner in 2017 and Perfect In Pink is preferred to Mr Moondance of his duo while Noel Kelly runs three with the veteran Mighty Whitey perhaps best of them though Oscar Light was engaged here yesterday.
