Not much between these at the weights but GLADIATRIX has improved with every start. Her latest second at Warwick looks the strongest form on offer and she may just edge this with further progress. Taizong's form has levelled out with a couple of placed efforts over today's trip but he should figure again while both Kinglami and Copp The Lot may have improved since last year and make more appeal than Caterina and Tinzapeas, who have been below their best of late. Dahab Gold was well behind the selection on her reappearance but was placed over C&D in November and could get involved on that form.
