Verdict

Dubai Glory is proving a hard horse to get past as he's held on for a couple of narrow margin victories at Windsor recently. He's not easily written off in this lesser grade, but DECEPTIVE is too tempting on her handicap debut. The latter was well clear of the rest of the field when third at Chepstow on her reappearance and with this longer trip sure to suit, Roger Charlton's filly gets the vote. Watered Silk has shown improved form this year and got off the mark at Kempton last month. He should figure back on turf, while Dr Darcey also has claims on his recent second at Warwick.
