In depth

Verdict

VELVET REVOLUTION is expected to improve for last month's modest debut effort over track and trip and and makes more appeal than Lady Lloyd, a runner-up over 6f here last time without threatening the winner. But Sunscape may prove a bigger threat having shown some progress at Salisbury on her latest start while Scarpeta should be noted on his racecourse debut. A stumble caused Lilly Vega to unseat last time but she made her debut at Newmarket and will find this easier.
