In depth

Verdict

Love And Be Loved only won a claimer here last year but will handle any give in the ground. Tiar Na Nog stays further and has also won at the track while Chantresse would have a chance on last year’s form. Roger Varian’s Shagalla reappeared in a Listed race at Newmarket so this is a huge drop in class but another three-year-old, SAPA INCA, gets the nod. Mark Johnston’s filly has been well backed in both starts this season and can finally get her head in front on this easier surface.
