FACE VALUED is used to mixing in better company than this and has been running well in defeat. He should take this drop in class in his stride. Alaskan Cruises and Uzta Have Money both landed maidens last time out and can battle it out for the silver medal.

Verdict

Guardian One and My Way Or Elway were second and third respectively in a similar event latest and should go well again. However, they could be playing for places again as DISTINGUISHABLE returns to the level she made all at with plenty to spare two starts ago and she may take some pegging back again.

Verdict

A wide-open claimer but there is plenty to like about the chances of WANDO CAT, who looked crying out for a return to a route when held by just a neck over 6f here latest. Yacht Ta Hey may need catching while Slew's Arch is a dual winner over this distance and is a big threat back up in trip.

Verdict

Neat Lady has strong claims on her victory over a route last time out, but that was in December and the drop in trip isn't in her favour. Preference, therefore, is for PRECIOUS PEGASUS, who also scored over a route latest but has more early speed and boasts an impressive strike-rate.
