Verdict

Dali's Lover made a winning seasonal reappearance here and her yard enjoy a good strike rate at the track. She holds Gabrial The Master on their running that day but has been below par on two subsequent outings for Charles Hills. The Fahey charge hasn't been seen since and the market should provide guidance as to stable expectations. Street Artist has been runner-up on all three starts but his recent Fibresand effort behind Jimmy Sewell rates modest from and more is needed. Interior Minister is a consistent sort who must go well but we'll give another chance to MUTHMERA. Still a maiden, she sports a first-time hood and cheekpieces but will certainly appreciate this first attempt at a mile and a half and was only caught late on in a Newbury maiden last time.
