    Verdict

    Bibury Flyer and Rancho Cucamonga will have their supporters here, but so too will Gifted Gamble, and we will join the plunge, while Gortumblo can also go well. Gifted Gamble has been in decent form in maidens without breaking her duck until last time out, when he won on turf at Lingfield a week ago. Connections have said that the colt has been crying out for the step up in trip and that makes the case even stronger here. Conversely, Bibury Flyer has been frustrating to follow, but she too got it right last time out at Doncaster and can also benefit from the step up in trip. She will be thereabouts again. Rancho Cucamonga took a six furlong Nottingham maiden earlier in the month before being outclassed up at Ayr, but back in this company there should be more to come, while top weight Gortumblo earned that mark with his performance in the Woodcote at Epsom earlier in the season, and if he could get back to that form then he would still have a big chance here. Nevertheless we have seen enough from Gifted Gamble to stick with that one here.
