In depth

Verdict

QUEENS GROVE completed her hat-trick when sluicing up at Hereford last time. Kevin Bishop's progressive mare should have no problem shrugging off a 7lb penalty and going in again in this company. Wilde Ruby landed a double back in June and makes more appeal than Pass The Time, unbeaten over timber in a couple of lower grade races but Moulin De La Croix has a shout on the back of her recent third at Wetherby. Twin Bud went close at Plumpton on her reappearance and is preferred to Marie Deja La.
