Verdict

There was little between third-placed Ness Of Brodgar and Beau Knight over track and trip last time when Croeso Cymraeg finished further behind. It was soft ground when Princess Harley scored at Yarmouth last month and her earlier success on the all-weather came at Southwell while both of Thresholdofadream’s wins so far have been over 2m including at Kempton last time. Joycetick and Murhib are closely matched on last month’s form at Lingfield and the latter has placed since but SACRED SPRITE is forgiven a modest effort over 2m at Wetherby as she won easily over today’s trip at Wolverhampton before that and John Berry’s unexposed filly gets another chance in this.
