Verdict

Big Meadow is the most consistent of these, never having been out of the first three on six starts under rules so far and was far from disgraced when beaten favourite last time, while Thegirlfrommilan handles the sort of conditions we're likely to experience today and so has to be feared if putting last time's disappointment behind her. Preference though, is for WHAT A DIVA. Peter Bowen's charge had looked progressive before disappointing in a trickier race at Towcester last time, in a result that could prove to be an anomaly. She looks to have further improvement in her and she can provide the answer.
