Verdict

The top four in the weights are all looking to follow-up recent victories. Saharia's win in a seller here looks the weakest form, while Without Prejudice was ending a two year losing streak at Leicester last month and has yet to score over a mile. Doncaster winner Violent Velocity registered his sole win on Polytrack back in 2006, which leaves us with ZAFEEN'S PEARL. She carried top weight to victory over track and trip earlier this month when winning for the the third time on this surface and is worth sticking with in her current mood.
