20/1
Shaped as if retaining ability on first run since leaving David Menuisier when 14½ lengths eighth of 12 to Raise You in listed race (66/1) at the Curragh (12f, good to soft) 34 days ago, doing too much too soon.

Set the standard and didn't need to improve to get off the mark in 9-runner maiden (13/8) at Down Royal (12.8f, good to soft) 6 days ago by 4½ lengths from Scenic Look, easily. Up in trip for handicap debut and has to be respected.

Forecasts

Maze Runner (3/1), Dancila (9/2), Foveros (5/1), Kazakdaria (5/1), Monty's Way (6/1), Gibraltar (13/2), Run For Oscar (7/1), Coventry (9/1), Dalton Highway (10/1), Dark Voyager (14/1), Shanroe (14/1), Nuits St Georges (20/1), Scenic Look (22/1), Zileo (25/1), The Jam Man (28/1), Dollar Value (33/1), Kondo Isami (40/1), Big Kitten (80/1)

Verdict

KAZAKDARIA is an unexposed type going the right way and, with this 2f longer trip likely to suit, she gets the nod in a competitive event. Maze Runner and Dalton Highway, who has won the last 2 renewals of this contest, head the opposition.
