Verdict

Only 3lb separates the field on official ratings but Admiralofthesea, Carina Palace and Gold Beau will all need to improve on last year's efforts if they're to figure. That leaves Clock Opera and CLOSE TOGETHER to fight this one out. The former has been placed twice in maiden company this year without threatening the winner on either occasion and Robert Mills' filly is preferred. She appreciated the drop back to a mile in a handicap here last time when caught close home by Shearian and gets another chance in this.
