Verdict

REFLECT didn't run badly on his reappearance over 1m3f at Kempton but didn't build on that when well beaten in a Newmarket handicap. He's probably still got a bit of scope and can take this drop in grade in his stride. Just Lille comes out comfortably best on official ratings and she's always a threat at this level as she demonstrated at Beverley on Tuesday with a very easy victory. She is an obvious threat while Mirrored takes a huge drop in class having contested Class 2 handicaps on his last two starts. Elizabeth Coffee won a similar race to this at Redcar and is consistent enough to make her presence felt.
