Verdict

JATHABAH kept on for fourth over 7f at Kempton on her debut so the drop back in trip shouldn't be a problem in this testing ground. She's preferred to recent Windsor third It's Taboo. Richard Hughes' presence suggests Amberley Heights, a half-sister to four winners, is preferred to stablemate Girl Of Cadiz while Mick Channon runs three and Sorella Bella could prove best of those as she's related to multiple winner Thrust Control. However, the American bred Elegant In Silk costs 50,000gns and she makes most appeal of the newcomers.
