Verdict

DIAMOND DAZE is one of the more more exposed runners in this but is at least consistent, despite looking high enough in the weights. The handicapper has been slow to relent but the drop down to this level could see her get the better of Ahuqd. The latter showed a bit more last time and could figure in first-time blinkers but Cailin Rinca and Glade Appeal have plenty to find on today's terms. Burn The Boats has plenty of scope but is having his first start since 2011 so Sterling Cooper could prove best of the rest.
