Verdict

Many of these look unlikely to be taking a maiden, even a relatively weak one such as this, but OCEAN OF LOVE represents a progressive option with top connections who ran well enough when only beaten by the favourite at this course last time. The drop in trip shouldn't be an issue and so she looks the one to side with for an in-form Saeed Bin Suroor. Sula Island improved on his first start for Richard Hughes last time and is feared most, ahead of Ebqaa, who showed she goes well on Tapeta at Newcastle recently.
