In depth

Verdict

Katja finished well clear of Sutton Sioux when runner-up here three weeks ago. The former has every chance with Oisin Murphy's 3lb allowance in her favour but ROLE REVERSAL is just preferred given she's faded in the closing stages over 6f on her last couple of outings and should prove well suited by today's shorter trip. Dreams Of Reality is a threat on her fast-finishing second over track and trip when Torridon finished a length behind. She makes more appeal than the remainder who look thoroughly exposed.
