Verdict

Not so competitive as the numbers suggest, and Tom Symond's handicap-debutante LEXI'S CHOICE is well worth siding with given she starts out on an attractive mark and will also benefit from this first go beyond 2m. Doyen Queen is another who will be seen to much better effect stepping up in trip so rates the chief threat, with in-form Maliboo another to consider and a solid place prospect.
