In depth

Verdict

Bloodsweatandtears went close here last time having slipped down the weights and should be in the mix once again. But MIME DANCE posted a better effort over track and trip last month, despite finishing only fifth, and the latter may just edge in this and can confirm latest running with De Little Engine. Aye Aye Skipper is another on the slide and could figure but Binky Blue has done all her winning so far over shorter distances.
