Verdict

The likeable Aimigayle made all to score over course and distance in September, beating subsequent winner Dawn Commander with Cannon Fodder back in third. The latter may struggle to reverse the form on identical terms, despite scoring here since, but TWEEDLEDRUM looks to have a great chance at the weights. She was only beaten a neck off today's mark at Wetherby in March and then won a Listed race at Doncaster. She's probably needed her two runs so far this season and should be cherry-ripe now. Grace And Fortune has gone close on a couple of occasion but remains a maiden and, along with The Road Ahead, may struggle.
