    Verdict

    Biba Diva has failed to improve on last year's Yarmouth maiden victory in a couple of starts on the all-weather, but Four Better scored on her handicap debut over 7f here. The latter looks a leading contender on that form as runner-up Berlusca has since boosted the form with a victory at Wolverhampton and there's little between that pair as they meet again today. However, MAJESTIC ZAFEEN was the most impressive recent scorer as she beat previous winners over C&D in an earlier qualifier of this series with plenty to spare and Alastair Lidderdale's filly looks capable of following up with more to come.
