Forecast

Corgi (15/8), Stream Of Stars (5/2), Urbino (10/3), Returning Glory (7/1), Sharja Silk (14/1), Polish (16/1), Soto Sizzler (40/1), Double Legend (50/1)

Verdict
A competitive maiden with plenty of the leading stables represented and a number of those declared showing obvious signs of improvement for being stepped up in trip. The likes of Urbino and Stream Of Stars are only going to improve with further racing, with the former seemingly having the measure of today's rival Returning Glory judged on synthetics form at Wolverhampton. However, the thrice raced CORGI has already beaten a couple of these rivals previously and his recent Newbury second was given a mighty boost at Chester on Wednesday with the winner Young Rascal running out a very taking winner of the Group 3 Chester Vase.
