    Verdict

    A cracking renewal of this Group 3 with the weights headed by Marsha, who is penalised for her victory in the Prix de L’Abbaye in October. She got the better of recent Dundalk winner Washington Dc that day and also Profitable, Cotai Glory, Goldream and Just Glamorous but Clive Cox’ five-year-old won this last year and he later beat Cotai Glory in the King’s Stand at Ascot so is respected. Cox also runs PRICELESS and the daughter of Exceed And Excel has been a revelation since dropping back to 5f. She shot clear of her rivals in a Listed race at Bath on her reappearance and is well worth a try at this higher level. Muthmir finally got his head back in front at Bath last month and could reverse Beverley form with Alpha Delphini last year while Kimberella looks to have improved since joining Richard Fahey, though this may be a step too far.
