Verdict

Choral Festival has obliged for each of the last five years and the mare indicated she's capable of landing the half-dozen when a fair fourth behind Heezararity last time at Windsor. However, she is notoriously hard to predict, although most of her rivals will have to translate decent all-weather form to Turf. Overrider suddenly rediscovered form on his seasonal reappearance and must be a strong contender if able to back up that improvement whilst Dozy Joe scored twice at Wolverhampton in March and demands respect. ATTAIN makes greater appeal though, especially if forgiven a below-par effort in selling company last time. The Dansili gelding previously displayed fair form on artificial surfaces and Shelley Birkett claims 5lb on a mount she knows well.
