Verdict

MAR MAR has only managed one win so far but did run well at the Dubai Festival earlier this year and hasn't done much wrong in three runs back in this country this summer, only going down by three-quarters-of-a-length in a fillies' handicap at Newmarket last time when conceding plenty of weight to the first two. This is a further drop in grade and she should prove hard to beat. The Cheka has been a good servant to connections but hasn't been quite at his best this year while Set The Trend has struggled since winning a similar race at Haydock in July. Intibaah has claims on his Ascot second in July but appears to have two ways of running and I'm So Glad has become a little disappointing. Grey Mirage looks to be well out of his depth.
