Verdict

The highlight of the all-weather season and the leading fancies will be hoping the redoubtable Suits Me can tack across from his wide draw and set a proper pace. If he does, then DANSILI DANCER could prove the one to beat. He ended last season dead-heating with subsequent Group 1 Hong Kong Vase winner Mastery over 1m4f at Kempton and, given something to aim at in the home stretch, he can come out best over a trip less than ideal. Nideeb was a progressive three-year-old and won a Listed event over C&D in November. Clive Brittain's charge looks a worthy favourite with more to come this year, while Pachattack ended last season with victory in a stakes race on the Polytrack at Woodbine though she has done all her winning so far against fillies and mares. The useful Silver Grey could make the frame at a big price despite a below par effort on her reappearance and Nice Style is a lightly-raced six-year-old handicapper who still has the potential to win at this level. He makes more appeal than Big Creek who failed to figure in three recent starts in Dubai.
