In depth

Verdict

Anthony Honeyball does well with his bumper horses and MIDNIGHT MINX looked a potentially useful performer when beating subsequent Listed winner Call Me A Star off level weights on the Polytrack at Kempton a year ago. She hasn't been seen since but we still fancy her to see off last month's Newcastle winner Flemens Pride and Wetherby third Bypass. Function Times may need more time while this is a tough start for newcomers Ellistrin Belle and Solera Time.
