Verdict

WATER SPRITE has run well in this race for the last two years and she can claim a second victory on her return to the Flat. Gordon Elliott's filly should appreciate forecast underfoot conditions and she can get the better of Dalton Highway who is stepping back up in trip following a good prep run over shorter last month while third can go the way of Bronagh's Belle who represents a leading yard and looks likely to appreciate this step up in distance.
  1. Water Sprite
  2. Dalton Highway
  3. Bronagh's Belle
