Forecasts

Never Ending Story (8/11), Gypsy Woman (6/1), Sandy Creek (13/2), Aspen Grove (15/2), Dower House (12/1), Danvers Gold (20/1), Rhodesia (20/1), Pure Circle (25/1), Signora Bellissima (33/1), Calling All Angels (40/1), Finsceal Go Deo (40/1), Unchained Melody (50/1), Kelly's Out (50/1), One Boss (66/1), Expressova (80/1), Tiymara (80/1), Nyota (100/1), Okyle Lass (100/1), Nightcliff (125/1), Ashoona (250/1)

Verdict

Lots of potential on show, but NEVER ENDING STORY is fancied to put the experience of her debut third here to good use and open her account at the chief expense of stable companion Dower House, who is a sister to Irish 2000 Guineas scorer Churchill. Sandy Creek is another choicely-bred newcomer who is worth considering in an intriguing maiden.
