Verdict

Une Artiste beat Alasi by two-and-a-half lengths in this 12 months ago but this year's renewal looks a lot more competitive. Doyly Carte was progressive last season and won in this grade at Cheltenham in April but L'UNIQUE won a Grade 1 at Aintree on her final start of last season having earlier beaten Cockney Sparrow easily at that track in December. John Quinn's filly is better off at the weights now and is fit from a successful campaign on the level but may still struggle to reverse form with Alan King's classy four-year-old. Mischievous Milly and Prima Porta are best of the rest but still have a bit to find at the weights.
