Verdict

Red Connect has shown plenty of pace in all races to date and, if taking to the surface, looks certain to get into the frame. MECCA'S MIRAGE came with a powerful late burst to take second spot behind Bond's Girl at Beverley. She's a half-sister to a Fibresand winner so should take to the surface and gets the vote. Diminutive ran quite well on her debut here then showed good speed before fading at Lingfield. Indian Champ is related to numerous winners and could do best of the remainder.
