    Verdict

    TOPMEUP has been performing consistently in this grade and should go close under Katherine Glenister. She ran well here on Polytrack earlier in the campaign and the application of a first-time visor may prove just what's required to see her land a first career success. How's Lucy has only had seven starts so should have more to offer and a repeat of her latest Yarmouth second to Moi Aussie would see her competitive. Varun's Bride looks best of the Hannon duo while Nicky Baby's form is better than her form figures might suggest and could prove interesting down to mark of 60 with Lulu Stanford claiming a further 5lb.
