Verdict

The usual competitive cavalry charge with endless chances as a weight range of just 5lb for the top 13 in the handicap demonstrates. Dakota Gold and Muscika finished one-two in the Sky Bet Dash at York last month on soft ground so make considerable appeal now with neither having received notably harsh treatment from the assessor. The former could well go back-to-back here for a yard that does so well with sprinters but is taken on with RICHENZA. The Beckett filly has been lightly-raced this term, was beaten less than a length in Listed company when last seen and will not prove inconvenienced should conditions soften. She should prove competitive off a mark of 96. Gunmetal, Lahore and Belated Breath are just a handful of others with decent credentials in what should prove a frenetic affair.
