Verdict

Another wide open affair in which the market may again prove the best guide. Scent Of Victory would go close on his best form which was a second behind Lishtar at Newbury on fast ground and in the hope that he can reproduce that effort on this surface he is the TEAMtalk selection. Gilded Dancer looks the main danger he has ran well in similar contests over shorter trips of late and this extra two furlongs could make all the difference. Starlight Night is a well bred filly who ran well on her debut but was slightly disappointing at odds on last time when second behind Grain Of Gold. If she is back to her best she will not be far away. Binche is also one to consider and it is interesting to note that Richard Hughes prefers this one to Starlight Night. True Companion could also go well as he has been running well over a shorter trip and his style of racing suggests this distance will suit. Dahoar is from a top Irish yard and any market move would be significant. The remaining newcomers will probably come on for the run while the others that have been seen will need to improve on their latest form to take a hand in the finish.
