Verdict

Several have been competing well over 7f including last year’s winner Eponina, a winner at Chester last month. Polyphony has gone close in both subsequent outings since scoring at Ayr while Arletta Star won over 7f at Carlisle on her penultimate start. But Al Messila won over a mile at Leicester with the re-opposing Heavenly Bliss back in fourth and can confirm superiority despite the worse terms. Moongazer makes her handicap debut having been rested since going close at Lingfield in April but a chance is taken on KIMBLEWICK. She’s faced tough tasks lately in Listed company and then in the Sandringham at Ascot last month and John Gosden’s filly will find life much easier at this level.
