Verdict

None of the ten are without a chance. Clouds Rest has competed at a very high level since completing an early-season double but Richard Fahey could have a better chance with VENTURA SHADOW, who came from out of the clouds to catch Pres Rapide over the course and distance with Stanghow staying on into third and the well-supported Indescribable only fourth. That could be good enough for this. Golden Zephyr has been a short-priced favourite for her last two starts on Polytrack after a promising debut at Ascot but has found little at the business end. Secret Liaison is probably capable of better than she showed at Lingfield as she was carried wide while Pillar Box ran well in the Weatherbys Super Sprint last week after an easy victory at Bath. Miss Mullberry showed little in her first two starts but did much better at Musselburgh when only failing by a head to catch Showstoppa.
