Verdict

Sparkling Dawn has been hard to train but wasn’t beaten far at Southwell in June. Millies Mite only weakened approaching the last at Newton Abbot after a close third at Fontwell but she’s now 0-19. Eaton Lady is 0-15 but Runwiththetide has only run six times over timber and placed in half of those. SAMATIAN had wind surgery in August and can make a winning return to action racing off the same mark as when third in a better race at Exeter in April. Moscow Spy and Mole Court might be best of the rest.
