Verdict

Blackthorn Stick won here a week ago but will need to dig a bit deeper under today's penalty. Minimee also carries 6lb extra having scored at Kempton on Wednesday but he's won off higher marks in the past and should be thereabouts again. Coastal Passage has been getting closer without threatening to win and Two In The Pink ran better than her latest eighth at Lingfield suggests. But HARVEST MIST went close off today's mark over track and trip on her penultimate start and it's Shaun Lycett's mare that gets the vote to come up trumps in this.
