Verdict

ROODEE QUEEN is hard to get away from in her current form. She's upped in class after landing a four-timer on her latest start at Bath, but she scored by four lengths, so a 6lb penalty is unlikely to anchor her here. Goodwood winner Perfect Pastime went close over C&D three weeks ago and has solid claims, while Dream Catcher is not without a chance if forgiven a dismal effort on the Polytrack last time. Welsh Inlet will need more after winning at Brighton last month but Regal Approval has slipped down the weights and won her maiden here last summer.
