Verdict

Divine Rule finished runner-up over track and trip last time ahead of fourth-placed Bold Ring. Royal Box ended a losing run with victory at Chepstow last month and is still fairly treated on his best form while Rapid Water was beaten only a nose over C&D on his latest start and should be in the mix. MARY FRITH is the least exposed in the field and with breeding suggesting today's longer trip will suit, Bill Knight's filly gets a speculative vote to open her account.
