Verdict

Adorable Choice has won three times in her career - twice at 25/1 and once at 33/1 - and is perfectly capable of another big run under a penalty for last week's victory at Pontefract. Lady Sledmere impressed with her victory on soft ground at Newcastle and is progressing nicely though this is a much sterner test while Save The Bees has gone up again after being beaten by Thatcherite, who runs earlier, at Thirsk. St Oswald, who started favourite in the latter event, looks held but SWITCHBACK will surely be given a more positive ride than at Kempton last time where he was held up in the rear before making late headway and gets the nod. Abidhabidubai will find this much tougher than the two recent claimers she has won and Ryedale Dancer's two mid-summer victories were in sellers.
