Verdict

Valley Queen is useful in this sort of grade as she showed when beating Hoppsan here last week. The assessor has only raised her 1lb so another big run is anticipated. ROYAL BEAUTY was a 20/1 chance when runner-up to Pyromaniac here a week ago and, off the same mark here, can go one better. She had several of these, including Gatamalata, who went off much too quick, behind and should confirm the form. Lord Kenmare hasn't won for a long time and is now on his lowest ever mark as a consequence. He showed a glimmer of his old form last time and looks the main danger.
