Verdict

LASTROSEOFSUMMER won over hurdles before landing her last two races on the Flat. It was probably a pleasant surprise to Martin Lane that she was raised only 5lb after running out a clear winner at Bath last time and his mare is taken to continue winning ways. Philip Hobbs' runners are always worth noting in these events and Zakatal looks a threat on his second at Newbury back in April, while Downhiller should have come on for his recent comeback after nearly two years off the track. Recent winners Baltimore Clipper, Danvilla and the lightly-raced Roberto Pegasus are others to consider.
