Verdict

POSITIVITY was beaten three lengths by Almahaza, who has since won again, when runner-up over C&D last time. However, she finished well clear off the rest of the field and Bryan Smart's mare looks set for a return to winning ways. She's preferred to Noble Attitude, who stepped up on her recent efforts to finish third behind On The Cusp here a fortnight ago, while Nevada Desert, Flores Sea and Archilini all have something to find with the selection on latest running. Naledi did better at Wolverhampton last week but has so far saved his best for that track.
