Verdict

Donald McCain took this race last year with Hit And Run and he has a decent chance again with Danceintothelight looking sure to make a bold bid from the front. Millie The Minx is also in form and aiming for a course hat-trick although this mark may test her while the one she conquered last time Magic Of Milan could well reverse that form over a longer trip. Both Theatre Act and Dark And Dangerous feature off dangerous looking marks and neither can be ruled out. The Hammond yard have a fair record here and look to be coming to the boil as does his representative STRIKE WEST and he’s given a tentative vote in a tricky opener.
  1. Strike West
  2. Danceintothelight
  3. Magic Of Milan
