Verdict

David Barron won the Golden Rose Stakes here with Jaconet before taking this contest last year and follows the same path with HITCHENS. The latter needed only to be pushed out to win the Golden Rose on his latest start, which was fortunate for jockey Graham Gibbons as he dropped his whip a furlong out, and he looks capable of following up. It's difficult to see Brave Prospector, Arganil or Angel's Pursuit turning the tables with the selection, but Anne Of Kiev is a progressive sprinter and she claimed the scalps of subsequent winners Five Star Junior and Breathless Kiss over C&D last month. Irish raider Duff usually runs well here and has place claims.
