Verdict

ROYAL BOX, who scored over the C&D on soft ground in June, has continued in fine form and defied a poor draw to score at Chester last time. He looks capable of defying a 4lb weight rise particularly as another improver, Rebecca Romero, appears happier on a quicker surface. Two Turtle Doves has found her form in no uncertain terms and has completed a C&D double on this kind of surface recently though Cape Dove, a close second to her earlier in the month, has since let the form down at Brighton. Triple Dream is always to be feared at this level and Kieren Fallon's booking catches the eye.
