Verdict

Having bumped into decent winners the last twice up north MINA VAGANTE looks a winner waiting to happen and she can strike for the first time for Hugo Palmer and James Doyle here. Whether it was the softer ground or longer trip that brought about improvement for Capriolette last time out remains an unknown but she is respected now given her unexposed profile beyond 1m. Ultra-consistent Allegiant deserves his day in the sun and he is sure to again make them all go.
