Verdict

Whipphound's recent course win came over 7f and he's upped in the weights along with Queen Hermione. The latter won her maiden at Chepstow last month and though open to further progress, she'll need to improve again. The last time William Buick partnered SWEET OVATION they tasted success at Lingfield. This looks no tougher despite a 4lb higher mark and Mark Usher's filly gets the nod. The veteran course and distance winners Almaty Express, Loyal Royal and Dancing Welcome are all capable of popping up at this level on their day.
