Verdict

MY SWEET LORD was headed at the line over course and distance last time. This looks no tougher and Mark Usher's charge gets the nod. Methaaly has slipped down the weights and showed signs of taking advantage when third here last week. He's preferred to Celestial Dawn, whose latest placed effort came over 7f. Slewtoo and Red Shadow are course regulars and pop-up from time to time but Imperial Spirit remains 6lb higher than when scoring here in September.
