Verdict

A trappy handicap to close the card and the three-year-old generation look to hold the key to its outcome. FRESA was a late returnee to the racecourse this season but she posted a fair second at the track last week and Sir Mark Prescott's filly looks to have every chance of going one better. Headed after setting the pace, she did at least keep chasing the winner, albeit in futile pursuit. Third placed, Gold Show, re-opposes though she isn't entitled on the formbook to reverse the placings but Dutch Diamond accounted for the winner of that race, Benzanno, in maiden company at Wolverhampton in April and John Gosden's filly has been very consistent in races of this nature. The well-named Corsetry may not have secured the best of runs on her most recent start at Kempton though she has not appeared to be the strongest of finishers in the past.
