Verdict

She Ain't A Saint may not have have stayed the longer trip at Sandown last time after a couple of wins on the all-weather. But it was still a disappointing effort finishing well behind fourth-placed SAMURAI SWORD. The Godolphin colt also struggled to get the trip but that was his first run since last July and he gets the vote here just ahead of Tropical Beat and Obsession. The latter pair arrive on the back of recent victories and are less exposed than Buzz Law and Ana Emarati, who both step up in class in a bid to land their hat-tricks. Soweto Star won a shade cosily at Windsor last month and is another to consider in a competitive opener.
