WILD COCO made a successful reappearance in this last season after a year's absence then landed the Park Hill Stakes on her final start. She will have been trained with this in mind and will take all the beating. No three-year-old has won for four years but that shouldn't prevent a big run from Elik, who has been gradually improving and ran very well behind Riposte in the Ribblesdale. She looks as though this trip will prove ideal and appears certain to go well along with Souviens Toi. Marco Botti's import from Italy had no answer to Goodwood Cup hope Brown Panther at Pontefract but she's another likely to need this sort of trip and any further rain would aid her cause. The consistent Jathabah is well up to this class and may prove best of the remainder.
