Verdict

There was plenty to like about the way Spanish Dawn swept past Queluz in a handicap a fortnight ago and the runner-up is expected to go well earlier. Escallonia, who finished 2l third, had every chance and looks held but a change of stables and a new trip galvanised FEISTY KATERINA here a couple of weeks ago when she only just failed to hold off Mcguigan. She can gain compensation though the winner's yard is represented by Fiannaiocht, who has yet to win but ran quite well on her track debut over a mile last time.
