    Verdict

    There is a large turnout for what is in reality a weak selling contest, with Dancing King, Berkeley Hall and Batailley having the best claims, and it is the latter that gets our vote. Batailley is drawn highest of the 20 runners and although yet to open her account, was staying on stoutly enough over seven furlongs at Leicester to suggest that she is tailor-made for this mile. Dancing King gave Berkeley Hall six pounds when making all to score for the first time in 20 attempts at Nottingham three weeks ago, and should confirm that form at the revised weights. The latter however is sure to be chasing hard again and is another to consider for a place as there will be four available unless five or more come out. The rest look a sorry bunch at present, with only Loner worth a mention. Michael Wigham¿s five-year-old shaped well enough on his return to action at Nottingham, having been off the track since December, and is now about two stone lower than when winning at Goodwood three years ago. It would be no surprise therefore if he were to play a part in the finish, but Batailley can beat him on this occasion.
