Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Lots of these are open to improvement, but EILEENDOVER has looked a very smart filly in going 3-3 in bumpers and Pam Sly's star is fancied to take this step up in class in her stride. C&D scorer Elle Est Belle is feared most on the back of her excellent third in the Champion Bumper with Miss Lamb, Mind Sunday and Finest View appealing as the pick of the remainder.
