    Verdict

    My Meteor has disappointed since finishing third here last month behind Burnt Cream is a race in which Frank The Barber and Top Cop were unplaced. Diminutive usually finds at least one too good but Gower Princess will be hard to keep out of the frame and likewise Catalinas Diamond. TRIPLE DREAM was just beaten over a slightly longer trip here earlier this month before finishing third at Kempton. He's 10lb lower back on Turf and, though not getting any younger, should give supporters a run for their money today.
