Verdict

ELLIE IN THE PINK is worth sticking with here. She was completing a hat-trick when scoring over 7f at this track last month having already won over today's trip at Lingfield. Alan Jarvis' filly can continue her winning ways dropping down a grade. Top Diktat has found at least one too good since winning his maiden at Yarmouth and the less-exposed Songburst makes more appeal on the evidence of his recent second on the Polytrack with Great Shot behind. Ferruccio is proving hard to win with, but Swift Bird can do better back over a mile.
