Race Verdict

MAID OF MEFT won with plenty in hand over 1m4f here last week and with the slight step up in trip sure to suit, she should take plenty of beating despite a 6lb penalty. Holden Eagle comes into this in cracking form but a 5lb rise for his solid second over 1m4f here last month will make life tougher. Corvette is also at the top of her game at present and it would be foolish to leave her out of calculations.

Selection: Maid Of Meft        Danger: Corvette        Alternative: Holden Eagle
