Verdict

Three-year-olds have dominated this but that hasn't put off connections of Light And Shade, who bids to follow up last year's victory off a 12lb higher mark. She's contested Listed races since winning here and at Yarmouth at the start of the summer but may find a couple too good on these terms. This also looks a stiff task for Carlisle winner Hidden Rebel and Margaret's Mission but Lil Sophella has been a grand servant and could run into a place. Labyrinth will probably start favourite but that may be more down to her stable and potential rather than the form of her easy win in a Salisbury maiden. ALJULJALAH (NAP) has had excuses since chasing home the top-class Nemoralia at York in May. She's still relatively unexposed and can bounce back today.
