Verdict

Rugged Jack won over a shorter trip here last week and his rider's claim takes care of the penalty. Admiral Blake is receiving weight all round despite having won his last two starts. A hat-trick isn't out of the question, despite the step up in class, and Night Of Passion could easily bounce back from a below-par effort at Warwick. Westerly Breeze is steadily improving and not without a chance but BRANTINGHAM BREEZE has shown more than enough to suggest she can win a race like this and her latest run behind Solstice Son at Plumpton has worked out well. She can finally get her head in front today with Clouds Of Mist probably best of the rest.
