Verdict

Silverrica showed good pace in most of her juvenile races but hasn't run since August. Marishi Ten has an even longer absence to overcome having failed to reappear after a promising effort at Newbury in May. ASSERTIVE AGENT finished last on her only start last year but changed stables and caught the eye with a fine run behind Shore Step over this course and distance when The Dark Wizard was well behind. Ben De Haan's filly should make further progress and can take this. Imperial Spirit had plenty of chances and ended up in Polytrack claimers but the four-year-old Asian Trader was performing with credit when last seen in August and looks a big threat.
