Imperial Legend is well treated at his best and if the ground eases he'll be in the mix though, in the expected conditions, HOLLEY SHIFTWELL looks the one to be on. Stuart Williams' filly won here and at Epsom on fast going last season and showed up well for a long way on her reappearance at Sandown. Breccbennach completed an early season double but returned after a break with a poor effort at Windsor while Ruby's Day appears better over the minimum trip and Sir Pedro only won a seller at Lingfield. Sandfrankskipsgo generally reserves his best for the Polytrack.
