Verdict

Intomist won this off a lower mark last year but should make another bold bid. Bennelong finished ahead of previous winner Secret Success when runner-up at Kempton recently while Be Royale ended last season in good form on the Polytrack and may also figure. BURNT FINGERS ran well for third in better company at Doncaster last time and it's Rod Millman's filly that gets the vote with plenty of scope for further progress. Welsh Inlet is upped in class after winning at Brighton and Sea Soldier is also taking on better opposition having found only one too good in soft ground here earlier this month.
