Verdict

Lilyfire made a winning start at Ascot last month but both placed horses have let the form down since. Hunters Creek won a maiden on the Polytrack three weeks ago and that looks stronger form than The Alamo's victory at Windsor. SMART SALUTE had a subsequent winner behind when scoring over 6f at Redcar and with this extra furlong expected to suit, Ed Walker's colt gets the vote to follow-up. Gown never figured at Chester last time but Ryan Moore's presence suggests she may well turn out best of the remainder.
