Verdict

SHANGHAI FANTASY showed enough promise on her debut to suggest that she can win a race of this nature. Zip's Secret's form is not as good as the selection's but her experience may prove vital in the battle for second place, while Irish Terrier and Baby Frankie are the pick of the newcomers.

CAMPS BAY is the standout candidate following his second-placed finish in a similar contest over C&D earlier in the month. If he can run to that level once again, Silver Fury and Bob's Bad Boy are probably playing for place money at best.
