Verdict

Birdie Queen finished well ahead of Torres Del Paine when runner-up at Lingfield last time and should make another bold bid off the same mark. But MINIMEE also remains on the same handicap rating as when second at Wolverhampton last week and given that looked a more competitive race than this, Phil McEntee's charge gets the nod. Welsh Inlet and Tijuca are both capable of making the frame while Surrey Dream finished third over track and trip a week ago with Custom House back in sixth.
