Verdict

The in-form DUALAGI gets the nod here in a race that fails to inspire. Although favoured by racing against the rail at Folkestone when successful a week ago, the mare was still relatively impressive for the grade. A penalty puts her on a stiff mark but with most of her rivals out of form she is hard to ignore. Thalia Grace never looked like featuring at Epsom but she wouldn't be the first horse to bounce back from a run at that unique track, Miss Firefly filled second to the selection last time and this consistent mare will run well for backers again, whilst Pragmatist runs this track well but she needs to bounce back after a poor Newbury run when favourite. Blue Again's form has a solid feel to it and the handicapper is giving her a chance inch by inch, whilst the returning Gooseberry Bush and the top-weight Russian Rave are both opposable unless the market says otherwise.
