Verdict

Some likeable mares’ on display in this Listed event and MARIA'S BENEFIT is given the narrow vote having impressed when dispatching her rivals in a Ludlow handicap easily last time out and there is a possibility that she may get an easy lead here. Sunshade looks to be her main rival as she puts her unbeaten record on the line and it may well be close between those two. Paul Nicholls has won this event twice in the last three years and his If You Say Run should be respected along with All Currencies who ran well in this grade last time but may just prefer a little further to bring her stamina into play.
