Verdict

A really tricky contest this and a whole host of Mares bring solid claims to the table. It may pay to look at the class angle and side with CAP SOLEIL, a winner of five of her eight career starts. She was entitled to have needed the run when midfield in the Grade One Mares Hurdle here latest but with that run under her belt and now eased substantially in class she gets the vote. Irish raider Agusta Gold is progressive and likely still on a winnable mark and Sunshade looks an interesting challenger with this longer trip expected to suit well.
