Verdict
A big field handicap and a competitive turnout for this mares’ event with Nicky Henderson looking to hold two of the key cards in Dame De Compagnie and LUST FOR GLORY. The former advertised her credentials for this with a very promising fifth here last time out but she’s been well found in the market and the latter is preferred after her sterling effort at Ascot last time. Plenty of others can be given a chance with Queen’s Cave who won’t fail through lack of stamina, Misty Bloom (improving sort) and Indefatigable (suited by this trip) all worthy of more than a second glance. Of those likely to be at bigger prices River Arrow who shaped nicely at Uttoxeter and Shambra can’t be ignored.
  1. Lust For Glory
  2. Dame De Compagnie
  3. Indefatigable
