Verdict

The Hannon team recorded hat-trick of wins in this between 2009 and 2011 so Spirit Of Xian looks sure to prove popular after scoring at Newmarket. He beat Al Ghuwariyah a short-head on that occasion but MAMBO PARADISE beat the same rival three lengths at Musselburgh a fortnight ago. That form makes Mark Johnston's filly the one to beat and she gets the nod. Clouds Rest is another recent winner having landed the odds at Beverley and that looks stronger form than Elizabeth Flynn's earlier victory at Wolverhampton. The newcomers are up against it in this company though Expensive Date is speedily-bred.
