Verdict

Moonrags looks capable of improvement with first time Lasix on the fifth start of her career, while Ariska arrives on the back of a decent effort over C&D last month. The vote, however, goes to VASILISA as she takes a fair drop in class.

Acrobatic Ally and Nook both look solid contenders on the pick of their form, but they need to be at their best to stop the consistent DARLIN ROSIE, who is likely to reverse form with the former from their meeting here last month now back up in trip.

SWEET ANNIE CAT has been running well of late in stronger contests than she encounters here and can get back to winning form. Countess St Michel is considered, along with High Power.
