Verdict

It's hard to make a decent case for any of this bunch. ROMANTIC BLISS has been well beaten of late but won over 7f at Wolverhampton in April and gets the nod on that form. Tasaaboq has shown little at Newmarket so far but drops in class while Chanceuse made the frame in a seller earlier in the year, though that was over 1m2f. Dandys Perier is a 6f winner but arrives out of form and Henke was a beaten favourite in similar company at Thirsk last time.
