Verdict

Given the shortcomings of the opposition, a speculative vote goes to DARK CRYSTAL. She steps up in trip and is dropped in class for this. Diffident Beats won a seller at Wolverhampton earlier but failed to beat a rival at this track last time while Princess Tanay is getting progressively worse. Sydney James has beaten only one rival in three starts so far and Rural Affair was still seven lengths behind the winner when runner-up at Wolverhampton a week ago.
