Verdict

The very speedy SIX WIVES won off higher marks last year and went close over this course and distance at the end of last month. She must go well again as the track clearly suits, though The Strig was just touched off at Brighton on Tuesday and is weighted to reverse earlier running on that track with Amenable and could be a danger. Ingleby Star has yet to take advantage of a tumbling mark and this level may be beyond his capabilities nowadays while 5f is probably too sharp for Commandingpresence.
