Verdict

John Quinn's horses are running well and Madamlily will have needed her comeback run on the Flat at Musselburgh, though has been a little disappointing so far over hurdles. Loch Dhu fell when favourite at Aintree 11 days ago having been held up well off the pace. She's capable of better but it's difficult to make a case for Bellaboosh, Thirty Days Out or Wheyaye. ZEFOOHA is high enough in the weights at present but is pretty much guaranteed to run her race and already has a C&D victory to her credit. Tim Walford's mare can come out on top again.
