In depth

Verdict

LEGACY GOLD has to give 14lb to her rivals but she's a mare going places judged on her two victories to date and should be capable of holding her own at a much higher level. She'll start at short odds but should have too much for the luckless Revaader, who was finishing in the frame for the seventh time in 15 starts when third in a Listed over course and distance 12 days ago but does lack an extra gear. Miss Fortywinks was tired when taking a crashing fall at Fakenham and that may have left its mark and Moniques Gift may need the experience.
