Innamorare and Eadbhard have plenty of placed efforts to their name but both have a bit to find according to the handicapper. Daliyah has been a tad disappointing this year but this represents a drop in grade and Dragon Girl has been running in handicaps. Descendant has a rating of 69 but that probably flatters Ken Condon’s gelding. MARICRUZ ran twice on the all-weather at the end of last year. She will have strengthened up over the winter and is fitted with headgear for the first time. Robbie Downey’s claim is an advantage in a race like.
