In depth

Verdict

This is a real puzzle as the leading contenders have been taking it turns to beat each other in similar events this winter. Emerald Wilderness beat Tinshu in last year's renewal and finished ahead of her again when second here last month with Mawaakef and BE PERFECT not far behind. He should go close again but Marco Botti's colt gets the tentative vote to reverse running as he likes to race prominently and should avoid any potential trouble in-running. Tinshu beat Robin Hoods Bay and Nazreef over track and trip in November while Strictly Silver finished just ahead of Mia's Boy when third over a mile here last month.
