In depth


Fast Pace lived up to her name when taking up the running a long way out to score out over track and trip last time. It was soft ground on that occasion, however, and INVINCIBLE CARA makes more appeal on today's forecast going. The latter was headed close home at Doncaster when attempting today's trip for the first time and there should be more to come from Ed Dunlop's filly over middle-distances. Better is expected from Jazz Master as he appeared not to last home over 1m4f at Newmarket but Cash Is King was less than convincing when stepped up in trip last time so Marlborough House makes more appeal.
