Verdict

This is probably the strongest of the two divisions of the nursery with Mistress Of Rome and Anginola both seeking to supplement recent gains, though the latter may struggle to confirm Kempton running on worse terms with Spunky. Fibresand winner New Decade doesn't look particularly well treated while Stellar Express has her stamina to prove over this distance and Enjoying may struggle to confirm Bath running with Foster's Road on today's revised terms. Richard Hannon's charge also finished behind TUDOR EMPIRE at that track last time and it's the John Gosden colt that gets the vote here. He has been thereabouts in better races than this and deserves a change of luck. Balti's Sister has been quite highly tried since winning at Wolverhampton in July and she may be the pick of those lower down the weights.
