Verdict

Having won four in a row over the minimum distance, it would be folly to ignore Nafa despite a new career-high mark. Chunky Diamond and Sleepy Blue Ocean arrive off the back of recent wins at Haydock and Nottingham respectively, the latter beating Mercers Row though now carrying a penalty. Three-year-old Flirtinaskirt might have a bit of scope on Turf and Diman Waters has only found one too good in his last two starts but MEY BLOSSOM wouldn't be far away if reproducing last week's run here behind Cincinnati Kit in a better race and she gets a tentative vote.
