Race Verdict

Show Flower comfortably won her maiden over the minimum trip at Ascot almost three weeks ago and makes plenty of appeal now sent handicapping, but the hat-trick seeking LOVE TALE edges the vote. As proven with victories over this C&D and, most recently, at Salisbury, she has improved a fair bit from two to three years and a further 6lb rise in the ratings may not be enough to stop her. Ashpan Sam is also respected having struck the crossbar on his last two starts.

Selection: Love Tale        Danger: Show Flower        Alternative: Ashpan Sam
