In depth

Verdict

Proud Archi would have preferred a quicker surface but is one of the few that make any appeal in the second division of this handicap. Tim Easterby could hold all the aces with TRUE BLUE MOON dropping down a couple of grades and ridiculously well handicapped. He hasn’t been running badly but is 8lb lower than when scoring over this trip at Hamilton in May and the talented Ella McCain takes off another 5lb. Younger stablemate Impeller can reverse Hamilton running with Elladora and is one of the few dangers with Yukon Mission just 1-20.
