Verdict

FRONTLINE PHANTOM is in-form and is taken to prevail. Elaine Burke's colt ran well at Sandown last time and altough he is up 2lb as a result he still looks competitive and the yard are in very good form. Magic Millie and Dazakhee win prizes for consitency, however Egmarey represents a trainer who has plundered prizes in Yorkshire this year and another bold run looks in the offing from this filly. Sharakti is a solid proposition and along with top-weight Broadway Dancer rates a big threat, with the latter likely to improve with racing over this trip and further over the coming months. Layla's Boy and Petrocelli have both been given mini-breaks since their last start and each has a little to prove this afternoon.
