In depth

Verdict

Rose Garnet has found one too good on too many occasions to have much confidence in. She finished second yet again at Wolverhampton last week and MAMBO SPIRIT looks a safer bet. He's bidding for a hat-trick of course and distance wins after comfortably beating Rose Garnet last time and can go in again in this company. Littlecote Lady should be in the mix again without being quite good enough while the likes of Lord Buffhead and Aljosan finished closer last time without threatening the winner.
