Verdict

Fast ground is not ideal for either Desert Command or Links Drive Lady but the former has the best recent form with a second at Epsom. Highland Acclaim will need to dig a bit deeper off his current mark having won at York in June but Atlantis Crossing beat Diamond Lady when runner-up over track and trip last month and may figure. Wahaab is lightly-raced and capable of better but a chance is taken on CHILWORTH ICON repeating his earlier run at Epsom when beaten only a short-head in better company. If he does so, then Mick Channon's charge should prove hard to beat.
