Verdict

Ningaloo Reef came with a sustained run to catch Shake The Bucket three weeks ago with Balmont Flyer and Little Arrows behind. He's only been raised 3lb and has a fair chance of completing the double. Alvar has won three times here but never beyond a mile though he was staying on strongly behind Cool Athlete over that trip last month. High Net Worth has a big weight but actually looks well treated as he ran a fine race when a close fourth to Senyuman early last month and has been dropped 1lb. The Black Devil's best form has been at a mile but Cristy's Call is running very well and wasn't far off defying a 10lb rise for last month's victory when a close third last week. SRETAW began her career with three poor runs here but began to improve on Turf in the autumn culminating in a victory at the Curragh in October. There should be more to come this year and hopefully she's be ready to continue her progress and take this.
