Obviously if Inspiral runs to her best she's highly likely to win. I have her right back to her 2yo best last time. The problem with her, for me, is that she still hasn't improved from her 2yo days. This is why she has been inconsistent. With the possibility that she'll throw in a poor effort I'm happy to oppose her at the price. Mqse De Sevigne beat Via Sistina last time, but I have no doubt that mare isn't as good as she was on her first two wins this season. I couldn't easily dismiss the Fabre filly in a race like this but, in my view, she's had a couple of hard races, so not for me.

I backed Heredia last time after her impressive Haydock win. There was a slow pace at Sandown and I have her winning that race without having to run up to her overall fastest, so I reckon there ought to be more in the tank. If Inspiral does run below par I think she's the one most likely to capitalise. Even if Inspiral does run to form, if Heredia repeats her Haydock run I find it hard to see her of the first three in this eight runner field. She's the bet.

Inspiral seems to lose when expected to win - and vice versa. I'm going for the French horse

As feared, Inspiral much too good on a going day. Heredia at least got a place. A fair run from yours A_T in second.

Good stab at getting Inspiral beaten Figgis. I went for the French filly but Frankie was just as superior as the horse.

Frankie excelled to bring up the 500th. Didn't see these above posts till a little while ago. The Racing Post 'Xbookie' was against Inspiral. That was enough for me.I felt it was time to bet like a man as the very fine 'Broadcaster and Commentator' the late Julian Wilson was apt to say when he fancied one. The Xbookie said 'My Mate Mozzie' was a near certainty. (Xbookie).

Howellsy, yes Heredia ran just as well as I'd hoped, no complaints there. Inspiral looked the winner from some way out and I actually think that was her best performance to date, by a few pounds.

I found it a tough card to rate on speed figures. I couldn't justify giving her a decent figure.
