Verdict

LIGHTHEARTED appears to have been allotted a fair mark and is put forwards ahead of Rublevka Star and Jordaura. Clive Cox's charge didn't excel in two runs in Italy for her previous connections but she was a highly encouraging second to Dune's Queen on her British debut and doesn't look too badly treated on that evidence. Jeremy Noseda landed a touch at this track over Easter weekend and the market must be monitored closely in respect to the chances of Rublevka Star. She won her maiden in a decent time having shown promise on debut and must be feared. Walter Swinburn has also scored with a nice three year-old at this track this season and Jordaura could be of interest having been backed into favouritism on his final start at two. He finished strongly on that occasion and appeals as the type to progress this season. Song Of Praise and True Decision are respected but will find life tougher as some less exposed horses enter the fray and we'll take a chance with Lighthearted.
