Verdict

A further 4lb rise brought Spiritual Flame's winning run to an end at Kempton last time. She'll be thereabouts once again but PEARL SPECTRE makes more appeal. He goes handicapping for the first time having won a maiden race at Kempton over 7f and today's extra distance should bring further progress from Andrew Balding's colt. Our Gabrial has been plugging away without success and it would be no surprise if the less exposed Capers Royal Star improves past him without being good enough to trouble the two principals.
