    Verdict

    A small field contest this Group three fillies event and we think Beneventa should be capable of beating Crimson Palace and Summitville. John Dunlop's filly caused a bit of shock first time up this season beating the hotpot Soviet Song at Kempton. He proved that was now fluke when comfortably beating Silence Is Golden and company in a group three contest at Newmarket. If anything today's race is a little easier and Beneventa can land the hat-trick. Crimson Palace was contesting moderate South African races as a three-year-old, but has been in terrific form in Nad Al Sheba for Goldolphin and looks the main threat to the selection. Summitville contested some top class races last season including the Oaks and the St Leger. Her best effort was at Epsom when finishing a brave third behind Casual Look. It was a shade disappointing that she didn't manage to win a decent race after that but she certainly has the class to figure in the finish here. Sun On The Sea could be best of the rest, but Beneventa goes from strength to strength and is taken to oblige.
