Verdict

Sherman McCoy went close over a shorter trip last time but had earlier finished well behind GINGER FIZZ when the latter went close over today's distance at Lingfield. Lightly-raced, Ben Case's mare can land this on only her fifth start on the Flat. Dangers abound as The Absent Mare was not far behind the selection in fourth place while Coup De Grace beat Bold Adventure over course and distance last time and the latter subsequently boosted the form with a victory at Wolverhampton. Recent Lingfield winner Honourable Knight is yet another to consider in a competitive affair.
