Verdict

BURREN VIEW LADY has won three times and been second twice in five runs over course and distance since July. She's very tough and, though raised a further 2lb, is going to take some stopping in this opener getting 3lb from Fat Gary, who is also in form but has been raised 4lb since winning on heavy ground at Carlisle and may find the hat-trick beyond him. Decision By One only won a seller over 5f here earlier in the month and neither Al's Memory nor Desert Strike have shown a great deal lately.
