In depth

Verdict

Fairyinthewind has gone close on her last three starts over 1m2f. She won over this shorter trip last year and makes more appeal than the unpredictable Morant Bay. The latter has separated a couple of modest efforts with a third at Wolverhampton and will figure if reproducing that form but Russian Ice appears stuck on her present mark. PRINCESS ICICLE won her maiden at Kempton and went close on her handicap debut at the same track. She's having her first start for over a year but gets the tentative vote with further progress a possibility. Chrissycross reverted to type last time having won over C&D last month but Chevise showed a bit more last time.
