Verdict

Gallipot finished fourth in the Park Hill at Doncaster before winning last year's renewal. John Gosden follows the same path with PHIZ as she found only The Lark too good in the above race earlier this month. She's just preferred to a similar type in Court Pastoral, a creditable fourth in Listed company at Chester last time. The latter's stablemate Songbird disappointed at York but had finished ahead of Kikonga in this grade at Newbury earlier and is also preferred to Souviens Toi and Tempest Fugit. The progressive handicappers Special Meaning, Miss Dashwood and Astonishing have more on their plates in this company.
