Verdict

Low numbers are best in maximum fields over this trip so Whatyoumaycallit may struggle from his outside berth, especially as he seems better over an extra furlong. Doonard Prince, who finished just behind him here earlier this month, has an even worse draw to contend with and may have to wait for another day. RIGID ROCK is a decent performer at this level though he's never won on the surface. He's gone close on several occasions and this could be his time to finally get off the mark. Dixiedoodledandy, who was in front of tonight's first reserve Bangalore Diamond and Mt Weather when runner-up over the C&D three weeks ago, can make her presence felt but Lily's Star is probably still a few pounds high and though Cookie Crumbles has the best of the draw and is consistent enough the fact that she's still a maiden after 22 starts is off-putting.
