Verdict

A low-grade handicap which can go to SWEETEST TABOO (NAP), though she has yet to show any real sign of aptitude for Polytrack. Willie McCreery's mare was in very good form on Turf last summer where she finished close up in four handicaps and a recent run here should have blown the cobwebs away. Pillar has been in very consistent form on the track but a career strike-rate of 0-22 hardly inspires confidence and though Shelbe has won here that was over an extended 1m2f and she's taking a massive drop in trip. Battleroftheboyne has won five times on Turf but never on the all-weather while Sartori, purchased out of a Thirsk seller, has shown very little in Ireland .
