D'Avignon is the highest rated of these but only just and this will be his first try over the longer trip. Mbhali is struggling to get his head in front and seems better on the Polytrack but Maiden Approach was only beaten a length over this trip at Doncaster last time and should be thereabouts again. MASTER DANCER has been taking on better opposition this year at Sandown. He's not been disgraced and this should be within his capabilities. She's Gorgeous hasn't been beaten far in her last couple of starts over a mile and should figure if she lasts home.
