Verdict

WATNEYA looked a very progressive filly when quickening well to beat Barathea Dancer over this trip at Sandown earlier this month. A 7lb rise in the weights may not be enough to prevent her following up here. Wallis is probably the danger as she never wins by much so the handicapper is unable to raise her as much as he'd like. Dark Promise had useful form as a three-year-old but may need this and Heavenly Dawn has also been on the sidelines for a while. Best of the rest may be Maid In Heaven, who gets little respite from the assessor but did finish ahead of Bahati at Ascot last month and will be winning again once she's dropped a few pounds.
