Verdict

Passion Play will strip fitter for her recent reappearance while Graceful Act, Fairest Isle and Magic Minstrel are open to improvement stepping up in trip, but Sally Friday sets the standard. She's finished in a place on her last four starts now and could certainly prove good enough here, but it could pay to take her on with one of the newcomers. Lady Sefton has a middle-distance pedigree that entitles her to consideration, but ULTIMATE BEST is related to five winners including the smart Film Script and she gets a speculative vote for a yard in good form.
