Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

ROSE HIP is still getting better at the age of 7 and, in getting up from an unpromising position at Lingfield, she made it 2 from 2 on polytrack, so she's worth chancing to maintain her unbeaten record on this surface. Phoenix Star arrives in form and should put up a typically bold showing, while Copinet is another danger if the race is run to suit her.

Betting Forecast

33/1 Tropics (Usa), 8/1 Lihou, 5/1 Phoenix Star (Ire), 7/2 Rose Hip, 11/1 Vandad (Ire), 9/2 Copinet, 18/1 Cooperation (Ire), 16/1 Existent, 7/1 Lucky Ava
