Verdict

Nearly Caught scored in soft ground at Windsor before finishing third in a conditions race on the Turf track at Deauville. It remains to be seen how he handles this faster surface and FAST PACE is preferred. She added to an earlier win at Nottingham with a victory on the Polytrack at Lingfield last time and a 4lb rise in the weights doesn't look insurmountable. Stiff Upper Lip is another recent winner to consider and makes more appeal than the so-far disappointing Jazz Master. Candoluminescence returned a losing favourite at Lingfield last time while Back On The Trial finished last when stepped up to today's trip at Bath.
