Verdict

MECADO ran well for a long way on debut in a better race at Kempton. Dropping back a furlong won't be a problem and he looks the one to beat in this. Arizona Snow and Bannister Bell are now qualified for handicaps and should be going down that route shortly. Frozen Princess was third at Lingfield last month but would need more here and Gipsy Doll has shown nothing in two runs so far.
