Verdict

A typical tricky low-grade handicap to end proceedings. SLEEPY HEAD had been going well on Turf before a decent run behind the prolific Park Row here and the winner is expected to go well in the previous race. He can get back to winning ways though Power Drive wasn't far behind and can get closer as that was only his second start on the track. Easy Boy is consistent enough but doesn't win often and is 8lb higher than his last victory here in February. Shelbe, who gained both of her career victories here, is now on her lowest ever mark and Colin Keane is a positive booking but Military Hill has never won on an artificial surface in 13 starts.
