Verdict

Isatis made a promising start at Kempton in November but has shown nothing in her two starts this season. Hummingbird has looked moderate though she may do better tackling quicker ground for the first time but Warcrown has been a disappointment so far and was caught close home over 7f at Beverley last time. Blue Dune will improve for her run at Newmarket while Noble Silk caught the eye on her only start behind Ladys First at York though that was over a year ago. Intent is a newcomer to note but ELTIFAAT is handed the vote after a very promising opening run at Kempton where he missed the break and had to race widest of all.
