Verdict

Ice Nelly and Monopoli have claims on their earlier placed efforts and Audacious will go close if repeating last month's second at Newmarket. Offbeat Safaris' recent win came over 7f and Alshazah scored over a mile at Salisbury last time. By contrast, Scarlet Prince has been winning over longer trips, including over 1m4f at Newcastle a fortnight ago. Emerald Invader's earlier victory came on the Polytrack so a chance is taken on Irish import MESARIYA, fourth in a Wolverhampton claimer last time and having her first start for Tony Coyle having tumbled 20lb down the weights this season.
