Verdict

Bollin Judith stepped up on previous efforts when beating Uriah Heep, who runs earlier on the card, at Kempton 10 days ago. She can race off the same mark here so has to go on the short-list but SPRINGINHERSTEP represents a better class of opponent. She was beaten at odds-on at Wincanton in May but earlier efforts, including a fourth in a Listed contest at Cheltenham in April, suggest she's the class act in this. Weather Babe should stay this longer trip having won twice at Towcester but Combustible Lady may not be the force of old and September Blaze has struggled to get her head in front.
