Verdict

SECRET GARDEN has been running consistently well all year, finishing no worse than fourth in five outings, and this represents a decent opportunity for her to claim win number 17. Dirty Laundry was just behind the selection last time and looks to be her main danger, ahead of the dropped-in-class Cotton Princess.

Verdict

SCOTTISH MAN has shaped with plenty of promise in two starts over 4 1/2f here and, almost certain to improve for this step up in trip, he could make it third-time lucky. Black Steel can build on his pleasing debut effort now dropped in class, while What A Story also has his sights lowered.

DIXIE DAZZLE certainly wasn't disgraced in much stronger company at Laurel when last sighted and, having bolted up in a similar event to this the time before, she looks the one to beat. Flashy Dragon Girl and At The Half are feared most.

Verdict

UNA BUENA MAMACITA had Bizzy Belle four lengths back in third when a promising second on her debut over 4 1/2f here and with improvement expected, she should be able to confirm form with that rival and go one place better. Churchill runner-up Channing Road is another to note.

COKER STROKER has posted four solid efforts in defeat over 4 1/2f and, providing his stamina lasts out over this longer trip, he could prove a tough nut to crack. Windsor's Deane and Pickles N Lime also warrant respect.
