Verdict

Marmalady steps up a couple of grades off an 8lb higher mark as she chases a hat-trick. EMJAYEM has more scope as he also goes in search of a treble and he's just preferred having scored easily over track and trip last time. Daylight finished ahead of Ask The Guru when third here last time and also has the beating of Edged Out on collateral form and Vallarta is not easily dismissed after going close at Newmarket recently.
