    Verdict

    Farnese came with a late burst to catch Munaajaat, who goes in the previous race, here two weeks ago and, though 6lb higher, looks certain to get involved again. CAUTIOUS APPROACH was beaten almost two lengths in third but never really got close enough to mount a threat. She has a slight weight advantage and that may be enough to enable her to turn the tables and land this. Suntory Times is still a maiden and hasn't run since February but had some decent form here over the winter and can't go any lower in the weights. Hidden Spark, a winner at Fairyhouse in July, has continued to perform with credit, including when a close fourth here last month, so could snatch a place at a fair price.
