Verdict

A Childs Dream scored over 5f on the Polytrack in May and wasn't disgraced over a longer trip at Ascot last time. She's a leading contender but SMART PAYER is preferred. The latter only won a seller at Catterick last month but did so by 10 lengths and was bought back in by connections. Jo Hughes' charge gets the vote ahead of the more exposed Imshivalla, though Ryan Moore's presence on Autopilot suggests he could prove a threat stepping up in distance.
