Verdict

Lauberhorn won off a higher mark at Pontefract last year and has Kieren Fallon's assistance in the saddle today. But he may just need his comeback run and faces a couple of race-fit rivals here. Filun is chasing a hat-trick after wins here and at Lingfield but carries a 6lb penalty for that latest success eight days ago and may find CELESTIAL GIRL a tough nut to crack. The filly has already shown her liking for this switchback track and went down with all guns blazing when only beaten a short-head by Penang Cita on her return to action over C&D. Off the same mark, she can go one better today.
