Verdict

Sir Michael Stoute won this in 2009 with Ave and hopes to repeat the process with MANGO DIVA, who overcame her aversion to the starting stalls to land a Listed race at Salisbury in impressive fashion. She's on the upgrade and though needing to make further progress she is handed the vote. Scintillula is the form pick on her victory at this level at Leopardstown and she's been competing in Group 1s recently. She'll be difficult to beat but has already had nine races this season and may be feeling the effects. Aloof won this a year ago when the favourite Caponata ran poorly though the positions were reversed here earlier this year and neither look good enough to beat the younger brigade.
