Verdict

HI FILWAH undoubtedly has the ability to win a race like this but has now started favourite in his last five races. He's given one final chance as his likely market rivals are proving equally frustrating with Cracking Choice having already had 17 starts and Shillito yet to really threaten this year. The filly Bond's Gift wouldn't have to be anything special to go close on debut as she's speedily-bred and she makes more appeal than cheap purchase Chessfield Park.
