In depth

Verdict

Tartaria and Sweet Piccolo are hard to fancy at the weights but there is only 5lb between the others according to official ratings. Shahrazad didn't run very well on her reappearance over course and distance but still looks the pick of the older horses. But this may well end up a rematch between Black Truffle and IDLE CURIOSITY. The latter came out best when the pair clashed in a handicap here earlier this month and, though a couple of pounds worse off, can confirm her superiority from an inside draw.
