Verdict

Momalorka has been running well in Group races without threatening to get her head in front. This looks a bit easier than her recent tasks but VICTRIX LUDORUM makes more appeal. She improves with every start and her latest victory in a valuable sales race in soft ground at Newmarket was her best effort yet. Trapeze is another progressive filly though she has some way to go to match the selection after winning a maiden at Yarmouth while Tantshi ran as though something was amiss when last in a Listed race having made a winning debut over 6f at this track. Steer By The Stars won a handicap at Catterick in good style last time and looks best of the remainder.
