Verdict

Ambiance ran a blinder to finish fourth in the Norfolk Stakes at Ascot and the Ripon winner is probably the one to beat here on that form. But we like the way FINE 'N DANDY went about his business at Chester on his second start. He looks to have a bright future on that evidence so gets the nod. Langavat made all to beat a useful sort at Beverley last month and is also respected while Survived was a respectable sixth in the Queen Mary and can't be ignored with her fillies' allowance. Majestic Alexander has already been well beaten in this grade, however, while Iseemist may also find this too tough.
