Verdict

This is virtually a re-run of a similar Listed event held over 2m3f here last month. Glens Melody made a successful raid over from Ireland on that occasion and the runner-up Mischievous Milly re-opposes on the same terms. But HIDDEN IDENTITY was beaten only a length in third and is 5lb better off today. That gives her a good chance of taking revenge and Tim Vaughan's mare may well come out best in what looks a tight contest. Prima Porta finished a further three lengths back in fourth and has been well beaten since while L'Unique's progressive form of last year came to an abrupt end after landing the Grade 1 Juvenile Hurdle at Aintree in April.
