Verdict

Tuesday's Towcester winner Dark Energy looks vulnerable under a penalty in this higher grade. Hired Hand won in Ireland last year but hasn't raced since December while the four-year-old Jaja De Jau needs to improve. Dubai Glory may have needed here run here at the start of the month, however, though she has a bit to find with both MARCUS ANTONIUS and Dormouse now. The top weight gets the vote to come out on top again, though the latter is now a couple of pounds better off so there may not be much to choose between the pair today.
