Verdict

Roedean sets the standard and should be suited by stepping up in trip though she was engaged in a maiden at Chepstow yesterday and also looks vulnerable to an improver, and there's several of those here. Specific and Defy The Odds both showed great promise behind Fallen For You at Newmarket and either could progress enough to take this while AMBER SILK and Swingland impressed on their debuts behind Gifted Girl here. The vote just goes to Charles Hills' filly, who was totally unfancied but ran on to great effect in the closing stages. Savanna Days didn't look suited to front-running at Newbury and can do better.
