CONSIDERED OPINION (NAP) makes most appeal in this having scored over track and trip back in May and placed in Class 3 company subsequently. Ralph Beckett’s filly should have the measure of Kalagia, who also drops back down in class having struggled at Goodwood last time. This is a more difficult task for Redcar third Planetaria and Brighton winner Nutini while Point Hope is usually thereabouts without winning and Malaspina has been off the track since February having landed a hat-trick at the end of last year.
