In depth

Verdict

ELLIE IN THE PINK hasn't won since 2011 and could probably do with dropping another couple of pounds but she's up to this class at her best and this looks a good opportunity. Crowning Star was running really well on Polytrack at this time a year ago but hasn't been seen since April and could just need the run. Diplomatic loves the track and trip and was attempting an extra quarter-mile last time. He didn't quite last home so a return to today's distance looks certain to get him into the mix. Zaheeb was headed in the final strides by Rapid Water here a month ago and will make a bold bid but Breakheart is 9lb higher than when scoring here in November.
