Not the strongest of finales but it can go the way of DOVEDON ANGEL. Julie Burke continues to prove what a fine young jockey she is and after Gay Kelleway's filly ran a fine race in second at Brighton most recently, she can go one better here. All Guns Firing and Credential are back to their latest winning marks but a bigger threat may come from Shifting Gold who beat all but one over course and distance last time out. Amy Ryan has guided Shifting Gold to victory twice before and she has every chance of doing so again. However, Dovedon Angel just gets the call.
