Verdict

Regulation has been going backwards over fences so this looks a straight match between Goodthyneaway and KILCARA. The top weight carries a penalty having bounced back to winning ways in a three-runner race whereas the latter has only gone up 4lb for scoring at Warwick, where she prevailed despite finding 2m short enough.
