Verdict

Night Angel had been in good form before finding the ground too soft at Chepstow and connections will be hoping the rain stays away while Gabrial's Bounty is dropped in both class and trip after an opening run over 7f at Newbury. Beach Candy ran better than her finishing position indicates at Sandown and is definitely on the short-list but Trusting looked one-paced at Bath earlier this month and will need to do better. SHEER VANITY attracted good support on her debut at Haydock and only failed by a short-head. She will have learnt plenty from the experience and will be difficult to beat.
