Verdict

It's difficult to pick holes in the recent form of Mini's Destination but she's jumped up 7lb in the weights since her latest success at Salisbury and Nicky Mackay has ridden her six times in the past without managing to get her head in front. She's passed over here in favour of Irish import QEETHAARA, who will be suited by this stiff mile and escapes a penalty for her cosy win in an apprentices' event at Warwick last week. Spavento has struggled since winning at Newcastle last month but Wiseman's Diamond ran a lot better at Ripon 11 days ago and is on a decent mark nowadays.
