Verdict

It isn't the strongest of handicaps to end proceedings, which gives MIACOMET a chance to get back on the scoreboard. She has not been too harshly treated for her narrow reverse at Navan last time and does typically take time with races at the start of the season. With that in mind and her previous course winning form, she looks well set. Powersville is the obvious improver in the race given her encouraging efforts this season, but a 9lb rise may just halt that, while the likes of Aloysius Lilius and Pulse Of Shanghai have contrasting profiles that could see them be similarly dark horses in this contest, with the latter notably going well when fresh.
