Verdict

MUKHABARAT put a very disappointing effort at Chepstow behind him when landing a Doncaster maiden in the style of an improved performer. He faces a much stiffer test here but should progress again and can gain his first handicap success. Lucky Di certainly deserved her first success on Turf at Goodwood as she had been running well while Hot Secret is probably best over 5f but this is a very fast track and she could last home. Marjong may prove the main threat as she has taken some time to find her form but was always in command at Warwick and there's more to come.
