Verdict

A competitive enough affair, where the suggestion is LAGAVARA. She may have been raised 6lb for winning at Leicester last time but the front two were clear on that occasion and she should enjoy conditions here. Given her age there's every chance she could improve again and may in time prove to be a fair bit better than her current mark of 111. The horse she beat there Daytime Ahead is also of interest, though she's actually worse off at the weights now due to winning on her penultimate start, so the main danger instead looks to be Edvardo, who may improve for the return to this trip.
  1. Lagavara
  2. Daytime Ahead
  3. Edvardo
