Verdict

Jonjo O'Neill tries the French Flat winner Tigresse Bleu in a visor after her recent reappearance and there's likely to be more to come from the four-year-old. The year younger Annaluna ploughed through the mud to score at Exeter and has to be considered in these conditions despite being a couple of pounds out of the handicap and though QUEEN'S GROVE is up 8lb for her victory at Taunton she found the 2m1f trip too short and her battling qualities can se her complete a hat-trick. Ruby Crown and Lady Kathleen are others to consider in an open contest.
