In depth

Verdict

Durgan had PAPAGENO a couple of lengths behind when runner-up to But Beautiful over 6f here a fortnight ago. The weights remain the same but the latter is more likely to be suited by the drop in trip. His main rival and Co Dependent, who was further behind, have both mainly raced over much further. John Jenkins' charge is hardly an inspired selection however as he's 0-21 so far, just one run less than the filly Gower Sophia, who has been beaten in a seller latest. The remainder have shown little though it's possible that Mosa Mine can improve on the form she showed at this time a year ago as her stable is in tremendous form and this will take very little winning.
