Verdict

This could turn into a real slog, especially if The Hollinwell adopts his customary front-running role, and that may not suit Et Maintenant, though he's shown recently that he's staying further as he gets older. OVERYOU certainly wouldn't mind this turning into a war of attrition as she was just beaten over 4m here last month. A winner at the track over hurdles, Chris Grant's mare gets the nod. Kent Street continues to be let down by his jumping while Ebony River is still chasing a first win, though probably has place prospects.
