Verdict

Connoisseur takes a big step up in trip but was very disappointing when fancied on her handicap debut at Brighton a week ago. Hint Of Grey has done well since joining Gary Moore and was returning from a break when a very good third at Kempton so looks certain to go well. LYFORD is 0-12 but stays the trip well and is still on a fair mark so hopefully it's 13th time lucky. Mythological reappeared after a long break to score at Beverley in May but hasn't shown much in two subsequent starts. Ginger Lady looked a likely future winner when runner-up over slightly further here in July but prospective punters would need to forgive a poor effort on a return visit last month.
