Verdict

Island Legend continues to improve and made it three wins on the Polytrack this year with victory at Kempton last time where he beat Fair Passion. Mottley Crewe has won twice over 6f but has plenty of early pace and could figure over this shorter trip, while Kylladdie scored over C&D last month but is 6lb higher today. LA FORTUNATA did nothing but improve last season, winning at Doncaster and Lingfield, and if Mike Murphy has her ready to go for her reappearance, she could prove the one to beat with further progress expected.
