      Verdict

      Few of these arrive in any kind of form though that doesn't include FOREVER A LADY, who would have to be the pick after just failing to concede 9lb to Stamp Of Authority at Ayr. She's on a fair mark nowadays and, though stall one isn't ideal for a hold-up horse, she'll love the ground. The latter remark doesn't apply to Colour Contrast, who completed a double on fast going here in May, while Midnight In Havana is still a maiden and has produced his best form on Tapeta at Newcastle. Prince Of Time is on a very long losing run but can't go any lower in the weights so could reach the frame.
