Verdict

This is a moderate contest and a chance is taken that MISS ADVENTURE can bounce back after seeming not to stay at Sandown earlier this month. Her previous effort over C&D gives her leading claims. Royal Ruby is an danger representing a top yard, but hasn't looked a world beater and may be vulnerable, while The Premier Celtic is going the right way and doesn't have to improve much . Royal Marskell ran well on belated hurdles debut in the autumn but looked moody on the Flat last time, and Legend of France is another with a squeak.
  1. Miss Adventure
  2. The Premier Celtic
  3. Royal Ruby
