Verdict

Volcanic Dust beat Daneglow by half-a-length on track and trip three weeks ago but there should be little to choose between the pair on today's terms, though the former is the better drawn. IMAGINARY DIVA needed her run at Lingfield on New Year's Day but performed much better at that track 10 days ago when getting to within half-a-length of Roy's Legacy. The winner got first run on her but she stayed on strongly inside the final furlong and on that form has nothing to fear from third Your Gifted or sixth Falasteen. Old-timer Methaaly could run into a place as he's still effective at this level and missed the break last time.
