GLADIATRIX arrives in terrific form and has already won twice here over 6f. She has a penalty for Monday's win in an amateurs' race at Windsor but apprentice Michael Murphy, who has ridden her before, takes off 5lb and she could easily complete a four-timer. There are plenty of dangers, however, including recent C&D winner Ginzan and old stager Haajes while Macdillon is rarely far away. Scott Dixon runs three with Richard Hughes on board the speedy Cadeaux Pearl while Taurus Twins, Waseem Faris and Charming are also capable of making their presence felt.
