Verdict

Mark Rimell's MISTRESS TO NO ONE was good value for her success at Exeter last month and, despite a 9lb rise for that success, she looks the one they all have to beat and gets the vote over Ruby Crown and Snake Skin. The last mentioned was well held at Towcester last time but is less exposed than most of her rivals and has to be considered. Craughwell Suas should appreciate the better ground today and represents the in-form yard of Lucy Wadham so cannot be discounted. Shipboard Romance remains a maiden after five starts over hurdles and 10 on the flat but she has shown enough to suggest that she cannot be completely discounted, while Ruby Crown looks to be going the right way and rates the main threat to the selection, Mistress To No One.
