Verdict

Seal Of Approval won a Group 1 at Ascot in the autumn and was staying on when clipping heels and falling over this trip in the Park Hill at Doncaster earlier. She could improve further this year as she's lightly-raced but carries a penalty in this, as does TAC DE BOISTRON. But Marco Botti's stayer was hugely impressive on his reappearance at Ascot and beat Cubanita out of sight in a Chester Listed race last year. The latter's defeat of Noble Mission on her reappearance is working out really well. Camborne has an excellent strike rate and handles soft ground while Tiger Cliff won the Ebor over course and distance last August. Gospel Choir looks a bigger danger, however, having beaten a strong field in the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket earlier this month. Ahzeemah had Glen's Diamond behind when winning the Lonsdale Cup here last year but Richard Fahey's charge reversed the form in a Group 3 at Ascot in October.
