Verdict

In-form trainer Dan Skelton has inherited My Flora but she still looks too high in the weights. Phase Shift was well beaten on her chasing bow at Wetherby and has to give plenty of weight to the much more experienced Glen Countess, who returned to winning ways at Wetherby but now races off a career-high mark. Tea Caddy beat A LITTLE SWIFTER by five lengths over 3m1f at Fakenham but the runner-up only weakened approaching the last that day and will enjoy the shorter trip. She's 5lb higher now and is fancied to turn the tables and land this with Overnight Fame raised 3lb since finishing second at Chepstow.
