Verdict

Gallic raider SPLENDID LIFE won this at 33/1 last year but hasn't raced since. However, she's unlikely to have travelled across the Channel unless she was race-fit and a repeat may be on the cards with little worthwhile opposition to threaten. On The Feather is a possible exception as she finished third at Plumpton last month while Snow Patrol stayed on late when fourth at Chepstow but none of the others have shown much of late.
