Verdict

It doesn't always pay to take a short price about a three-year-old against older horses in handicaps but KING AND QUEEN has completed a double in impressive fashion since moving from France and is still ahead of the assessor. Sempre Presto has gained both of her career victories on this track and is just 2lb higher than her last success while Champagne Rules and Low Profile fought out a finish over the course and distance in May and the revised weights should see them just about dead-heat. Breathable was in winning form around this time last year and has gradually dropped to a winnable mark.
