In depth

Verdict

Darkdeserthighway landed a touch when successful here a couple of weeks ago and an 8lb rise is unlikely to prevent another big effort. Michael Halford's yard is in good form and ENDLESS SEASON made a promising track debut on the same card and normal progress can see her land this. Sadiqaa has started favourite in his two starts since leaving the UK though has looked a few pounds high but Stratacaster, who showed nothing on Turf, did much better on his debut here in August. Harbanaker is having his first start for new connections and is back on the same mark as when successful here in January. Plankton was engaged in the 2.40 at Bellewstown yesterday.
