Verdict

This looks very difficult for punters with plenty of contenders. KHOBARAA made a winning debut at Kempton in December and gets a purely speculative vote on her return. Homage and Mission Approved are other maiden winners representing powerful yards and course and distance winner, Labienus, could also get involved. Grilletto has the more recent form but today's wide draw doesn't help his cause while Ready landed a double over track and trip in November and is not out of this. Skytrain won twice in March and Sinaadi is not easily dismissed on her fifth in a Group 3 at Newmarket last season.
