Verdict

ELMAAM had plenty more in the locker when beating subsequent Hamilton scorer Zennor to get off the mark at Beverley last month. Willie Haggas' filly is still on the up and doesn't look badly treated in her first handicap. She gets the nod ahead of Bonnie Brae, who is more exposed and penalised for her win in a lower grade at Salisbury last Sunday. Sunset Kitty hails from a stable in form but Walter Swinburn's top weight has to defy another career-high mark if she's to complete her hat-trick while Countermarch was favoured by the weights when scoring at Wolverhampton in March. Tameen is likely to need this while Imaginary World continues to creep up the handicap, despite not winning.
