Paradise Lake had just the one start for current connections and will be winning before long while My Amigo gets closer as he slips further down the weights but will need to improve on earlier efforts over today’s trip. Shamrokh drops back in distance but is 5lb higher than when runner-up at Newmarket last year while Lunar Deity’s double last summer came on the Turf off much lower marks. WICKER won her maiden over track and trip before placing in a handicap back here last time. Dropping down a grade for this, Jane Chapple-Hyam’s filly may prove good enough.
