In depth

Verdict

Good Luck Fox ran much better when fourth here 12 days ago but still finished two-and-a-half lengths behind The Thin Blue Line, who is only 3lb worse off. ATIYAH was only beaten a short-head by the latter at Wolverhampton in February and is 3lb better off. She finished ahead of Good Luck Fox subsequently at Southwell before getting back to winning ways at Chelmsford and she went close on Turf last year at Ripon and Nottingham. Bossipop is preferred to course and distance winner Primo's Comet of the others.
