Verdict

Most of the attention here is likely to surround the three-year-olds Centred and Huffoof. The former won over a shorter trip here in May before finishing second at Goodwood while the latter was also successful over 1m2f at the track eight days ago. She has a penalty to carry, however, and it would be wrong to underestimate the claims of the four-year-old VILLA ROYALE. The top weight was just touched off at Yarmouth last week and can race off a pound lower mark in this. Bollin Greta won off a much higher mark at York a year ago but has been struggling for form so far this term and Wadaa would need to improve on her maiden form to figure.
