Verdict

LOW CUT AFFAIR stands out on her maiden victory at Windsor last time. She scored by over four lengths and it's not difficult to see her going in again in this company. No One Knows finished third behind the selection and may do better this time and Makin A Statement showed some early speed at Nottingham on his debut. The Card Players is related to a winner and makes more appeal than Mignolino and Littlemissblakeney of the newcomers.
