Sweet Martoni has landed two of her last three and is up 5lb for a latest win over course and distance but is still a main contender in her current form. Evident, in contrast, has looked below par this term, in line with the overall form of the yard and is best watched for now. Tides Reach was only having her fifth career start here when third to Sweet Martoni but is now actually 2lb worse off for that defeat whilst Royal Connection finally got her head in front last time at Brighton but made heavy weather of it and this looks harder. She's respected all the same but UNISON scored over course and distance on his penultimate start and then ran a blinder when second to George Cinq in an Ascot mile handicap. He's been raised 2lb for that but will prove hard to beat if repeating that form here.
