broke well to lead early, soon tracked leader, travelled well in 2nd over 3f out, progress to lead entering straight, ridden 1 1/2f out, headed under 1f out, no extra and dropped to 3rd final 100 yards
The last three winners have been drawn wide so Isle Of Shadows can make a bold bid to gain compensation for her narrow defeat over 6f at Sligo on her first start for new connections. Ebony Belle, who was a close-up third, was showing her first sign of ability and should also get into contention. Gatsby Cap went up 6lb for scoring over a mile at Dundalk and has been raised another 5lb for a close second over that trip at Gowran when caught on the line. Burning Lake won over the trip at Newcastle for Charlie Hills and ran very well on his first two starts for new connections at Dundalk. He didn't appreciate dropping in trip there last time and can do better. ASANDA (NAP) has shown ability and Shane Crosse is tremendous value for his claim. She caught the eye on her handicap debut at Leopardstown so John Feane's filly rates a sporting bet at a fair price.
