Verdict

Giants Play sets more than a useful standard here after a taking run in defeat in a red-hot handicap last time but at the likely odds HIBBA could represent some value. The Marcus Tregoning filly wasn't given a too tougher time on debut but seemed to travel and stay on well at the business end and with a decent pedigree to live up too she should come on for the run. Frankie Dettori is an interesting jockey booking on John Gosden's Strictly Lambada while the in-form trainer also saddles the mildly progressive Dazzle The Crowd, which is the choice of stable jockey William Buick. Giants Play should run a huge race but Hibba looks better value.
