Verdict

Stamina is definitely the strong suit of Millicent Silver, who battled on strongly to score at Uttoxeter after getting outpaced. She's up 8lb but will be staying on at the finish and tough to keep out of the frame. Streets Of Promise easily beat her at Warwick in March on heavy going and though out of form subsequently it would be no surprise to see her bounce back. Cannon Fodder has a course and distance victory to her credit and was third in this a year ago while Tambura has won a bumper on the track and scored over hurdles on testing ground at Uttoxeter. PRINCESS TARA completed a double at Ffos Las earlier in the year in very testing conditions and only faded from the last on her reappearance at Chepstow. She looks capable of better this campaign and can carry her big weight to victory.
