Verdict

Red Intrigue will appreciate the increase in trip and races off a realistic looking mark. She offers more appeal than Shelfah who disappointed at Newmarket last time out but the form from that race looks strong as the top three have all scored since. The blinkers brought out the best in Doon Kalal last time and they are on again for this race and he looks a big danger to our pick, SEA CHANGE. The selection runs under penalty after a very convincing win on the Polytrack at Lingfield and this 290,000 guineas purchase trained by Jeremy Noseda has the strongest claims if translating that all-weather run to the turf. Exemplary is 5lb higher for victory at Leicester but he appears to prefer firmer ground than this.
