Verdict

From top weight DIAMOND REFLECTION may be the one to side with here. Effectively just up 3lb for winning last time (penalised but half the weight is claimed off) he is drawn well in stall 4 in what seems to be a similar sort of race. If replicating that performance he should go very close indeed following another good effort at Kempton two starts ago. He is narrowly preferred to New Abbey Angel, who looks dangerous back down to a more suitable trip, while better can also be expected this time from Sunshineandbubbles.
