Verdict

EL MIRAGE went close last time but is rated 8lb lower on Turf and she's better judged on an earlier third at Kempton - that form is still good enough to land this. Cyflymder has been competing over different distances since scoring over track and trip in July and may figure, while Patronella found only one too good at Brighton last week and could be thereabouts. Midnight Feast won three times on Polytrack last year and has slipped down the weights subsequently.
