Verdict

Winning form in soft ground is hard to find in this but BEAUTIFUL VIEW finished a runner-up in similar underfoot conditions at Leicester. She'll need to reverse earlier running with another leading contender in Jubilante but is taken to do so. Magic Destiny is upped further in the weights for finishing second at Ayr and is now 8lb higher than her earlier win at the same track, although she did finish ahead of subsequent winner Dusky Queen at York in August. Maid A Million is normally consistent but was well beaten in soft going at Newmarket last time which doesn't bode well for this.
