Verdict

Jane Elliott rode last year’s winner and partners Kinglami today, who saves his best for the venue and finished in front of Princely when third here last month. But 2017 winner OEIL DE TIGRE looks set to make another bold bid having given notice of a big run with an improved effort in a higher grade sprint at Windsor last time and Tony Carroll’s charge gets the nod. Joegogo and Good Luck Fox have both proven best over the minimum trip so far and the latter is fitted with headgear for the first time while Major Valentine and Kate Leahy scored over track and trip in May and went close again off today’s higher mark last month.
