Verdict

Not an easy race to solve. Zahoo holds Dark Promise on their meeting at Doncaster but the latter remains unexposed and was a very well-backed favourite that day, although conditions here probably favour Zahoo in truth. However, we'll take them both on with CALATRAVA CAPE, who won over course-and-distance last time in the style of a progressive filly. She's up 6lbs but fully deserves it as she idled in-front and is taken to confirm her superiority over Nafura, who races lazily and remains a stone above her highest winning mark. Sea Of Galilee is a fascinating runner now tried over this trip as her maiden form has worked out and cut in the ground is ideal, similar comments apply to maiden Dazzle The Crowd who makes her handicap debut, while Mildoura will appreciate the drop in grade.
