Verdict

El Dececy would have live claims if allowed as soft a lead as he received at Ayr but there appears to be plenty of pace in this line-up whilst Social Rhythm was very impressive at the same venue when coming from off the pace, prompting the handicapper to put her up by 11lbs for future engagements, but she has never put back-to-back wins together and so preference is for COLD QUEST. Linda Perratt has her team in tip-top form at present and Cold Quest ran out a convincing winner at the track just under two weeks ago. He has a shorter trip to contend with but raced prominently and appears to have the speed to cope with the drop back and he's able to race from the same mark and could prove to be extremely well handicapped now that he's found his form as he started the season 13lbs higher.
