Verdict

Scribe is interesting on his first start since May having been purchased from Ballydoyle in the October sales, while Martine's Spirit finished a couple of places ahead of the disappointing Balandra when third at Lingfield last time. She'd earlier finished just in front of the less-exposed Silver Blossom at this track, but the latter is expected to come out best today with further progress likely. Echos Of Motivator is another frustrating type so a speculative vote goes to John Gosden's HOUSE OF MIRRORS on his belated debut as connections will be desperate to get a win out of the 390,000 dollar colt.
