Verdict

Only four face the starter but this is far from straightforward. Alwida will probably start favourite given Sir Mark Prescott's strike rate here and the fact that his filly was taking on better opposition when second at Haydock last time. But she's gone up a further 4lb while Pearl Spice was well beaten off his new mark when starting favourite at York. Kelvingrove may not have beaten much here last time so we'll take a chance on NATEEJA, who was only fourth to Alwida at Sandown in July but is 9lb better off now and entitled to get much closer. Her latest third at Chester suggests she's improved since.
