Verdict

Gan Locht won this last year but has been beaten out of sight in four subsequent starts. Mad For Road finally opened his account when scoring over 1m4f here last month but has plenty to prove over today's trip. He beat the re-opposing Well Insured on that occasion and the latter has yet to win in 26 attempts. Horsewithnoname and Dashing Duchess finished further back in the same race but Jigalo is a course and distance winner and Mutiska has a shout on her third in this race last season. STAR POWER gets only a tentative vote on the evidence of his modest efforts over 2m last year but he's tumbled down the weights since and should be thereabouts.
