Verdict

A top heavy nursery with Imperialistic Diva and Eucharist giving plenty of weight away to the majority. The handicapper took a dim view of Eucharist's narrow Doncaster success where she had No Poppy, Child Bride, Honeymead and Intrusion behind; they will all fancy their chances of finishing closer or even reversing the form but Eucharist travels so well that it would be no surprise to see her come out on top again. However, stablemate HUMDRUM has looked in need of this sort of trip on a stiff track so may be able to progress further and is given the vote to score from a feasible mark. Wafeira has to be feared given her connections, Song Of The Siren can make another bold bid from the front whilst Intrusion can go well at a price with the jockey one from two for Richard Fahey in recent seasons.
