Verdict

Luca Cumani trained the winner of this in 2008 and his INFINITE HOPE looks to have every chance here. She had a subsequent winner behind when a close-up third at Doncaster earlier this month and a first-time hood should sharpen her up. Devine Guest has been running well in handicaps without success and looks next best ahead of the returning Opera Box, not beaten that far at Haydock last May. Multilateral is another having his first start of the season but recent Goodwood fifth Miss Dashwood is expected to finish closer today.
