Verdict

It's a while since Evella got her head in front and she's become increasingly hard to predict. FAREWELLATMIDNIGHT was also pulled up here last time but that was over a longer trip. Alex Hales' mare has won twice over shorter distances on this track and can add to her tally today with veteran Crack At Dawn returning from more than a year on the sidelines and See You Jack finishing a long way behind the selection over C&D on his reappearance.
