prominent early, soon steadied off the pace in 6th, good headway out wide chasing leaders over 2f out, stayed on disputing 2nd final furlong, not pace to challenge, went outright 2nd close home
Course specialist Andaleep beat Lady Reset here three runs ago but David Pipe’s mare is more consistent and can reverse that form on 4lb better terms. Sky Power usually attracts market support and found only one too good returning from a lay-off at Goodwood. However, he never looked like catching the winner and has been raised a pound since. Though still without a victory, MOUNT MARCY has run some decent races in defeat on the all-weather. The switch to Turf and step up in trip could possibly see him in an even better light and the four-year-old looks fairly treated on a mark of 78. Roscioli didn’t appear to be enjoying quicker ground last time at Windsor but did finish ahead of a subsequent winner and had King Of Tsavo behind when winning earlier at Newcastle.
