Verdict

Both Relight My Fire and Ypres went close on their penultimate starts last year so are not easily dismissed on their seasonal return. But Who's Shirl hasn't figured off higher marks since scoring at Newcastle while Tartan Trip hasn't won on Turf since 2010. CAPE OF HOPE ran below par in soft ground at Catterick recently but wasn't beaten far when runner-up on the Polytrack last month and gets the vote to land this with a similar effort. Victoire De Lyphar and Camerooney have the past form to figure in an open contest.
