Merry Vale (7/4), Dubious Affair (15/8), Opportunist (5/2), Mercury Dime (16/1), Polar Cloud (20/1), Laurentia (25/1), Lep (50/1), Just A Touch (66/1), Marmalade Day (66/1), Byron Green (66/1)

Verdict

Dubious Affair will have her supporters and her form entitles her to plenty of respect here, but preference is for the less exposed MERRY VALE. John Gosden's filly took a slight backward step on her second start, but she couldn't be in better hands and if she can get back to the level of her debut form, or better, she will be very tough to beat. The other runner of interest is newcomer Opportunist, who has an eyecatching pedigree and it would be no surprise to see him go well first time.
