Verdict

Curl drops into this grade for the first time but the fitting of a visor smacks of desperation. Winter Music has already been beaten at the lowest level while it's hard to fancy Spanish Art after a lacklustre effort when favourite at Yarmouth last week. GREY GAZELLE hasn't progressed from a debut third at Newbury in April but will never get a better chance to win a race unless Pixie Cut proves better than her breeding suggests.
