    Verdict

    MEDIATION was only beaten a couple of lengths behind Movie Set when third in an Ascot maiden on her second start. The winner was just beaten in a decent handicap on the Polytrack on Wednesday and Roger Varian's filly should be opening her account here having only found one too good on her debut at Newbury. Miro was last of three at Nottingham but Alhania, third over a mile at Kempton a year ago, and Wolverhampton fifth Fair's Fair have bags of scope and should be winning soon.
