Verdict

A few of these have been taking each other on in handicaps over the winter. Even Stevens reversed earlier form with Silken Express at Wolverhampton last time with Swiss Cross, Forest Edge and Addictive Dream further behind. But the latter has subsequently beaten several of the above over track and trip. Kingsgate Choice and Stepper Point were last seen in the l'Abbaye at Longchamp and the former has gone well fresh before while Monsieur Joe has been competing in tough handicaps at Meydan without success. Last month's Cleves Stakes over 6f here is proving a good trial and LADIES ARE FOREVER won it last year before claiming this prize. Geoff Oldroyd's mare could only manage sixth in the Cleves this time round but is fancied to reverse running with fourth-placed Iptisam and come good again today.
