    Verdict

    A trio of last time out winners make a quick reappearance here. Amir Pasha scored at Catterick under today's pilot last week, but it was soft ground on that occasion and she may not confirm running with runner-up OBARA D'AVRIL. The latter has since won under Carly Frater at Beverley on Tuesday and she looks better suited to today's surface. Jewelled Dagger has won twice at Ayr this month and he has to come into the reckoning, while Toshi arrives on the back of a win over hurdles and could also figure.
