Verdict

KUALA QUEEN continues to perform with credit but keeps finding at least one too good, though her fitness is guaranteed after a respectable second to Ashkari on her Bath reappearance. She has obvious claims in a contest short on solid form and may just make here fitness tell, although she's yet to encounter ground with cut. Bold Spirit is almost sure to prove the best of these in time and may well be good enough but he, too, has no experience of forecast conditions and has been absent since finishing runner-up in a Windsor maiden last summer. The market should prove valuable regarding the chances of newcomers Femme De Menage and Lightning Moon and also Mercury Magic, whose Lingfield effort was surely too bad to be true after a debut of some promise.
