Verdict

This looks to be a match up between TWIST AGAIN and Diktalina with preference for the former, but Trumpstoo is worthy of inclusion on the shortlist. Paul Howling's filly notched up back to back successes over slightly shorter last month, but going the full two miles doesn't look to be beyond her. She's not won off such a high mark as this though, while Diktalina is now back to the mark of her only previous win, but that was over a mile and a half. She's got more than a stone in hand on our selection, but having only one raced beyond a mile and a half, there may be a concern about whether she'll get this trip. The same could be said for Trumpstoo, who previously has raced up to a mile and a quarter, but Richard Fahey knows the time of day when it comes to finding an optimum trip, and given his form this season, you oppose any of his at your peril. We'll take a chance though with Twist Again.
