Verdict

MOMENT OF TIME is a different class from these if at her best. Her placed efforts in Listed company last year is easily the best form on offer and she should be opening her account in this. Headline News went close in soft ground at Newcastle last time and could prove next best ahead of Redcar runner-up Anychanceofabirdie and Emerald Invader, sixth on his debut at Newmarket. Keeping Time has also had a couple of starts at HQ but has shown little so far and was tailed off in testing ground last time.
