Verdict

Able Dash showed a big improvement stepped up to 1m4f at Kempton. He'll figure if carrying that form over to this surface. Balmoral Castle won over a mile at Warwick recently but scored over track and trip last season and should be thereabouts, but veteran Masai Moon has never won over further than 7f and attempts this distance for the first time. CHORAL FESTIVAL is upped 3lb for winning at Brighton last time but scored off a higher mark in 2013. She gets the vote to go in again now seemingly back to her best.
