Verdict

Most of these are looking to put below-par efforts behind them including Decana. This looks easier on paper than her recent tasks at Southwell but she's yet to prove as effective on this surface. Spieta's poor effort when favourite at Brighton can't be put down to the track as she'd run well there earlier in the year while Prospera will need to improve further after a 6lb rise for her recent win at Doncaster. MAGIKA didn't get home over 1m6f at Sandown last time but Marco Botti's filly had gone close over today's trip at Newmarket before that so gets the tentative vote.
