Verdict

An interesting handicap in which the Nathan Alison's claim is taken to prove the decisive factor on FLIPPANT. The Pivotal filly had been progressing nicely enough in ordinary company before being sent to Epsom on Derby Day for a highly competitive handicap in which nothing went right for the Haggas inmate. She's been given a good rest since and will have no issue with the forecast softened conditions. Fire Fighting will need to improve again on a dour Brighton success, whereas Mythical Madness should have more to offer after just three starts. However, it's the progressive Shafrah who rates the biggest threat, ahead of Billy Blue, despite top weight.
