Verdict

A couple of these bid for hat-tricks but Eager To Bow is up another 4lb having just held on at Kempton last time and SCOTTISH GLEN makes more appeal. The latter has yet to win in five outings on Turf but can race off a 7lb lower mark today as a consequence despite winning his last two starts on the Polytrack here. He gets the vote ahead of the less exposed Macchiara who should figure on her handicap bow having got off the mark at Doncaster last month. Takitwo may be in the handicapper's grip now after a couple of wins over 7f earlier this season and Jungle Bay has failed to figure since scoring at Wolverhampton in May.
