Verdict

Miss Diva has plenty of early pace so a return to the minimum trip looks worth a try. She should be thereabouts in this grade but the vote goes to another filly dropping down in distance in CARA GINA. She's making such rapid progress that the extra weight may not be enough to prevent her winning again having landed a hat-trick of victories over 6f at Bath recently. Royal Acquisition scored at Kempton last time but was well beaten at Ripon on his only start on Turf to date which tempers enthusiasm for him, while New Fforest is still looking to take advantage of a slide down the weights but has made hard work of it so far this season.
