Verdict

The handicapper seems to have been extremely harsh in raising Paradise Expected in the weights for her third over 2m5f here in May but Tim Vaughan's mare probably still has the ability to figure on her return to action. Oniz Tiptoes has been a bit more like his old self recently and the nine-year-old would have claims if reproducing his Wetherby second two runs ago. But the one to beat is almost certainly UKRAINIAN STAR, who stayed on strongly to score off this mark over fences at Warwick last time and is much improved since last seen over the smaller obstacles.
