Verdict

Nirva is the only one of these not to have won last time and looks as though she needs some rain. Etaab defied a 6lb rise to complete a hat-trick over 7f at Doncaster and is better over this longer trip. WATER HOLE was having her first run since scoring at Lingfield in early December when gaining an impressive victory at Doncaster last month when there looked to be much more to come. A 7lb rise shouldn't prevent her going in again. Rekdhat is progressing nicely and both she and Fray, a very impressive winner here, could show enough improvement to challenge the selection while the pair who followed Spirit Raiser home here in June have both won subsequently.
