Verdict

Thatchereen is proving hard to place and so is Cincinnati Girl. Assoluta has more on her plate than when getting off the mark at Bath while Cape Mystery disappointed on her handicap debut at Newmarket. STARLIT CANTATA hasn't been beaten far in two runs off her new mark since winning at Lingfield. She's a consistent sort and, with Bright Cecily remaining out of sorts, can win for the first time on Turf this afternoon.
