Verdict

TOPTEMPO makes most appeal in this. Mark Tompkins' filly remains without a win but began handicapping last year off a 17lb higher mark and, having gone close at Newmarket last time, she looks set to finally open her account. Grandiloquent is another tumbling down the weights but looks no nearer to winning while this is much tougher than the seller Anginola won at Brighton on her latest start. Candyman Can is also upped in class but Fantasy Blue is not easily dismissed as she makes her handicap debut for powerful connections.
