Verdict

Lucky's Dream missed out on a hat-trick when only third at Leicester though is not easily dismissed with a leading amateur on board. But Becky Smith partnered BLUE MEDICI to a cosy success at Nottingham last time and it could pay to stick with Mark Loughnane’s charge in this. Magic Shuffle won over a mile before placing over today’s trip at Windsor but Gravity Wave has been competing over longer distances and wasn’t beaten far when fourth at Epsom recently. Double Legend is another dropping down in trip having won over 1m4f on the all-weather earlier in the year.
