Forecasts

Wild Illusion (9/4), Sun Maiden (3/1), Magic Wand (10/3), Perfect Clarity (10/1), Highgarden (10/1), Athena (12/1), Dancing Brave Bear (16/1), Sarrocchi (25/1), Lady of Shalott (33/1), Sizzling (33/1)

Verdict

WILD ILLUSION sets a solid standard on form from her runner-up effort in the Oaks and it will be hard for her main rivals to reverse that form here. Perfect Clarity was clearly well below form that day and quicker ground may play to her strengths here while Magic Wand is another who may improve for a faster surface. It would be no surprise to see her take another step forward and finish closer to the selection this time.
  1. Wild Illusion
  2. Perfect Clarity
  3. Magic Wand
