Verdict

Despite conceding weight all round, it's difficult to look beyond MISS OVERDRIVE in this opener. Andy Turnell's mare has had eight runs since scoring over 2m5f at Ludlow last October but she's been keeping very decent company and her latest second at Ascot is head and shoulders above anything achieved by her rivals. Recent Taunton second Be Kind and Little Fee, third over 2m4f here on her latest start, should contest the minor placings.
