chased leaders, improved to lead before 7th, clear after next, extended advantage before 9th, slight mistake 4 out, ridden and reduced advantage after 3 out, headed before next, no extra in 3rd before last
HOLY MOTIVATION has found one too good in both starts in handicaps so far and just missed out when caught close home at Downpatrick last time. She finished in front of Court Adjourned on that occasion with several of these further behind so Gordon Elliott’s mare gets the vote. Lady Of The Sea remains 5lb higher than when scoring over track and trip in July but Glamorous Nellie won at Clonmel last month though was well beaten back at the same track before that. This looks easier than Silver Planeur’s recent tasks while Alizee Javilex was placed for Dan Skelton on a couple of occasions and has only her second start for new connections.
