Several of these have claims. Tuolumne Meadows ran well over track and trip last time and just has the edge over Ffos Las runner-up Sir Valentine on these terms. But EYESHINE (NAP) found only the progressive Dubka, who has won twice again since, too good at Chepstow in June and John Gosden’s filly gets the vote on that form with first-time headgear applied. Attest could also go well stepping up from 1m2f while the newcomer Snobbery is related to winners and worth a second glance.
