Verdict

Loyaute's victory at Kempton was franked when runner-up Baltimore Rock won at Ludlow on Wednesday. But she's gone up 10lb since while Benefique Royale was beaten at Ludlow after winning off a lower mark at Sandown. Flementime is starting to make up for lost time and should have more to offer, however, while A Shade Of Bay got off the mark at Southwell last month. MIDNIGHT BELLE was only a length behind Loyaute at Southwell in December and is 10lb better off now. She was second over 3m at Ludlow last time and, back over her best trip, can take this for Tom Symonds.
