Verdict

Black Truffle won on the Polytrack in March but was well beaten in his only two runs on Turf last year. We much prefer POLISH CROWN, who has also improved on the all-weather this year but did show some promise on Turf last season and can progress again. Duke Of Orange is interesting now going handicapping while Baltic Gin was second over course and distance around this time last year and should be winning soon. Katy Spirit has won a couple of times on Polytrack but hasn't as much scope for improvement as some of these.
