PHENIX has impressively notched up a Thistledown double and she might be able to strike again whilst the iron is hot. Red Letter rates the biggest threat following her neck defeat over 6f although Electro Peg is unlikely to be far away either.

Verdict

STRAWBERRY had Cross My Heart (third) and The Grange (fourth) behind when runner-up on only her second appearance over this track and trip and, with further improvement on the cards, she rates the one to beat. The other pair are respected but Navigatethebridle, who is entitled to improve for last month's comeback, is feared most.

RAGTIME BAND defied long odds when winning impressively on his debut over 6f here and, open to any amount of improvement, he might be able to complete the double. Moovin On Machen also has few miles on the clock and he demands respect, while Vua Saigon is better than showing latest.
