At The Races Verdict

MEARING kept on well in the closing stages when picking up some minor money over the extended 1m1f at Carlisle and could feasibly step up on that effort, off an unchanged mark, now granted this stiffer test. Bacacarat dead-heated for victory over 1m at Newmarket but was putting in his best work in the finish and could improve again now upped in distance. Dance Legend, making her handicap bow, looks best of the rest.

Timeform Verdict

BACACARAT found some improvement when dead-heating over 1m at Newmarket last month, and with the longer trip/underfoot conditions expected to hold no fears, there appears no reason why he won't go well again. Dance Legend remains with a good deal of potential and is feared, ahead of the thriving Mearing.
