Verdict

The useful and consistent MISSUNITED is the definite form pick on the balance of her runs in similar grade and she can give 4lb and a beating to the less-exposed Twigline. The selection has won half of her 14 races to date and, though not at her best on her two latest starts, her earlier efforts point to her chances. Twigline took a crashing fall at Sandown when looking a likely winner and will be fancied for compensation, though at this stage her form doesn't compare to that of her rival. Bobbina ran quite well in a handicap last time but Money Spider, who was outclassed in a Grade 2 last time, may prove best of the remainder.
