Verdict

AUGUSTA ADA is hard to get away from in the opener. She's improved with every start and her latest second at Pontefract is easily the best form on offer. Ollie Pears' filly should be opening her account against today's opposition with Song of Rowland looking the chief threat. The latter failed to show any progress at York last time but his earlier second at the same track gives him the edge over the remainder. Pure Amber is worth a second glance on his racecourse debut though breeding suggest he'll prove better over further in time.
