Verdict

Aktia won three times last season but the handicapper appeared to catch up with her here on her final start and she might need this. Lunar Victory was a fair third at Kempton on his reappearance and has claims, while Shallow Bay proved a progressive sort last year and was a close-up second to Warlu Way on his return to action at Windsor. Vita Nova is defending an unbeaten record and has scope for further improvement but the assessor looks to have given a chance to ELLEMUJIE, who is only 3lb higher than when successful on similar ground over C&D just under a year ago and ran well in a couple of starts over inadequate trips last month.
