Verdict

Plenty of guesswork involved here and PLAY THE BLUES gets only a tentative vote. She went close over 6f at Folkestone when last seen, stays today's extra and has a bit of scope for improvement. Cape Kimberley won at Salisbury before he and the rest of the field allowed You've Been Mowed to make all and win by five lengths unchallenged over a mile here. The latter is 10lb higher today and will find this a lot tougher, while Emiratesdotcom faces very different conditions to the 6f on soft ground he won over at this track last time. Fault and Hippique could prove best of the rest.
