In depth

Verdict

Winning pointers Churchtown Love and CLOUDANTE could feature strongly in this bumper with preference for the latter. Donald McCain makes few mistakes with this type and the Cloudings mare showed a nice turn of foot to score by five lengths at Ballingarry last month whereas Rebecca Curtis' charge hasn't raced since scrambling home in a mares' maiden at Belharbour in February. Ebony Empress has been placed at Ascot and Chepstow and should be winning soon while a market move for newcomers Chantara Rose or Eaton Louie would be interesting.
