Verdict

DUBAI CREST was attempting to give 7lb to the useful Cotillion when beaten at Uttoxeter four weeks ago. That was a big improvement on his previous run at Hereford and Nicky Henderson's charge can regain the winning thread here at the chief expense of Midnight Opera, who has been keeping better company but has become a little disappointing of late. Silver Lily needs to step up considerably on a couple of wins in sellers if she is to complete her hat-trick but Moonwolf and Ixora have the form to figure if returning from an absence at the top of their game.
