Verdict

Iffranesia is upped in class and raised 5lb having followed up a course and distance win with victory at Ascot. High On Life's winning run came to an end in soft ground at Newmarket last time while Pearl Blue was ending a long losing run when scoring at Headquarters and makes less appeal off a higher mark. Normal Equilibrium finished ahead of Megaleka and Jamaican Bolt when going close at Ripon and Humidor has slipped down the weights but BURNING THREAD has won off a higher mark since finishing runner-up in last year's renewal. He gets a speculative vote to go one better with 2011 winner Secret Witness and Go Far others to consider.
