      Verdict

      The three-year-old ANNA BUNINA (NAP) was having her first start over this trip at Ripon where she completed a double, battling back gamely after being headed. She's only been raised 2lb and a hat-trick beckons. She holds Railport Dolly on that run but Sheberghan, a winner at Sligo for Dermot Weld, has changed stables for the second time and has dropped enough in the weights to give a good account. Billy Roberts, a winner over the trip at Beverley in July, was well beaten when attracting strong support here later in the month but that was his third race in three weeks. Fraser Island was last of five at Yarmouth but has dropped to his lowest ever mark.
