Critical Data won over 7f here in June and can figure despite being penalised but LOVING PEARL has the advantage on today’s terms. She finished a promising second over 7f at Chepstow on her debut and Ralph Beckett’s filly should make a bold bid in this and confirm running with Mirabai in the process. Shifting Gold is a likely improver on the back of a modest debut effort at Wolverhampton and looks best of the remainder unless the newcomer Thinque Tank proves above average.
