Verdict

LADY LONGSHOT arrives here on the back of two victories when last seen back in June and she should take plenty of beating today if ready to go after a 272-day break. If the selection were to need the run then Belmont Jewel could be the main beneficiary based on her narrow defeat at Huntington earlier in the month. Others to consider are Hiupinthesky, Lee Side Lady and Princess Midnight.

Verdict

The most interesting one is HIUPINTHESKY, who bolted up in a maiden point last month and can be expected to leave her previous Rules form well behind on this debut for Oliver Sherwood off an opening mark which probably underestimates her. Belmont Jewel is feared on the back of an improved effort last time and the hat-trick seeking Lady Longshot also merits respect.
