Verdict

Kevin Ryan sent Blue Moon out to win this for Yorkshire last year and Mark Johnston will be hoping Vocational can follow suit. She's only run once on Polytrack when beaten a head in a Group 3 at Kempton and her overall form at a higher level entitles her to the greatest respect. Imaginationrunwild makes her all-weather debut and has been running well enough in testing ground to suggest she can be thereabouts while the lightly-raced Precious Dream has won here in the past and doesn't look badly treated. VIA BALLYCROY came with a sustained run to catch Candlehill Girl over 6f here last month and, with just a 6lb rise to contend with, Mick Halford's filly looks the one to be on.
