Verdict

PALE ORCHID has much the best form with a couple of placed efforts on the Polytrack since joining David Evans. She looks to have an easier opportunity to open her account here and is likely to be a short price do so. Magilini has a bit to find with the selection on the evidence of her debut second at Wolverhampton, though there's every chance she will step up on that effort here. She looks the chief danger as it's hard to make a serious case for any of the remainder on what they've shown to date with Papageno possibly the best of them.
