In depth

Verdict

Love And Cherish and Morga are newcomers to note though both may do better in their second campaign and the experienced pair COCKTAIL HOUR and Almalekiah will take some beating. The latter travels from the UK after showing a fair level of form in minor company but it's Dermot Weld's filly, who just failed to catch Wholelotfrosie on heavy ground at Galway, who gets the nod. Queen Of The Sand can do best of the remainder.
