Verdict

These are moderate animals ridden by inexperienced pilots but the consistent LIL SOPHELLA should give supporters a good run and can gain her second success. Silver Tigress followed a victory at Newcastle with a disappointing run there while Flag Of Glory appears better on Polytrack. Royal Caper is two from three this season but a 5lb rise for landing a poor Brighton contest may prove too much to handle. Zainda has never won in 19 starts and the veteran Kay Gee Be could do with some rain.
