Red Spinner looks best of those with experience though that isn't saying much and it should go to a newcomer. John Kiely and Derek O'Connor are a formidable combination in these races so Hickson has to be considered along with Solatentif, whose German-based sire gets plenty of winners. The filly ZARAFINA is bred to be useful on the Flat so in the expectation she will have more basic speed than most of these she's given the nod to make a successful start. Mick Winters has booked Nina Carberry for Hereicome, a daughter of Rakti, and any market moves should be noted.
