Verdict

Tahiti Pearl has been running well without winning and found one too good yet again at Doncaster last time. She's up another 2lb for that, but GROUSE LODGE is only 4lb higher than when scoring at Cheltenham in April. Donald McCain's charge has a recent pipe-opener at this track under his belt and gets the nod. Simply Wings paid the price for a couple of mistakes at Ascot last month and had nothing left to give in the closing stages. He can figure with a clear round, while the likes of Shadows Lengthen, Fairy Rath and Noble Legend were all winning earlier in the year but have shown little since returning to action. Mister Grez has been competing in better company of late and an improvement is expected dropped in class.
