Trainer Comments:

Eric Sands, explaining the background to the recommendation to replace Lerena, said yesterday that he had not been entirely happy with the way his horse had been ridden in his two races this season.

“But at the end of the day it was about making the right decision for the horse and so I told Gavin that I had decided to make a change. He was more understanding than I expected.”

Jockey Comments:
Coming soon.

Winning Form – Magic Tips Comment:
3rd run after rest. Two good runs this season. Ryan Moore rides. Merits respect.

Verdict: Coming soon.
