Verdict

WESTERN FRONTIER made such a promising start on this track that he went off a short-priced favourite on a return visit but couldn't cope with the impressive Third Of March. His stable companion Captainofthebounty was just over a length away in third and there doesn't look any reason for a form reversal. Recovery Road never got into contention at the Curragh in August but with his stable still in top form he's expected to do much better. That's Not Me has been leading for a long way before fading over slightly longer trips so she'll be difficult to peg back.
