Verdict

Cotton Trader should be in the firing-line once again but, given his propensity for finding at least one too good, ESTEDAAMA gets the nod. She produced a better effort on her reappearance when finishing a place behind today's rival Imtithal at Lingfield and Marcus Tregoning's filly is bred to show her best over today's longer trip. She's fancied to reverse running and open her account here as the others with experience make no appeal on what they've shown to date though Polydamos is expected to improve this year and Muzhil is a newcomer to note in the betting.
