Verdict

Reyaadah has something to prove over today's longer distance but the John Gosden-trained pair, Cushion and Gertrude Versed, both have claims with jockey bookings suggesting the former has the best chance. Cubanita would prefer some cut in the ground and that may also be the case for both Making Eyes and Reckoning, with the latter well beaten at York last time. Sound Hearts has to be forgiven a woeful effort over 1m4f at this track but Rock Choir has a shout on her third in similar company at Salisbury. Luca Cumani could have found a handicap for Newbury maiden winner BONANZA CREEK but sets her this more difficult task and she may well be up to it despite having a bit to find at the weights on today's terms.
