Verdict

SOSIAN has yet to tackle this trip but her style of running on recent starts suggests that the Showcasing filly will prove well suited to the increased yardage here. Sean Davis claims a useful 3lb and she should prove competitive off a mark of just 49. Percy Prosecco will be popular hailing from the Watson yard and may find this trip ideal after weakening late on over 2m last time. Conditions look fine and he looks a major danger. Frame Rate runs this track well and is one to keep in mind if the market speaks well of him, whilst Elite Icon ran well here this month behind the prolific Lever Du Soleil and should prove as effective dropping 2f in trip. Spark Of War has place claims.
