Verdict

FADING ICON finished second on her most recent outing at Fontwell back in February and has since joined Philip Kirby, for whom she is expected to take a step forward to gain her first success over timber. Cherry Princess was third in this contest off 7lb lower 12 months ago and warrants respect, while Frightened Rabbit benefits from Danny McMenamin's 7lb claim on his seasonal return and could also figure.

Verdict

FADING ICON ran right up to her best when runner-up at Fontwell in February (final start for Sheena West), and with her rider able to claim a valuable 10 lb, she is fancied to go well on debut for her new stable. Returning-veteran Sleep In First is feared, ahead of Cherry Princess.
