Forecast

Just Wonderful (2/1), Fairyland (5/2), Main Edition (7/1), Angel's Hideaway (8/1), La Pelosa (12/1), Byron Bay (12/1), Chicas Amigas (20/1), Octave (20/1), Stillwater Cove (25/1), Pretty Pollyanna (28/1), Reponse Exacte (33/1), No More Regrets (33/1), Satisfying (66/1), Cotubanama (66/1), Merry Go Round (66/1), Nakakande (100/1), Jensue (100/1), Hawayel (100/1)

Verdict

Mark Johnston launches a two-pronged attack on the Albany, and whilst he mightn't have the strength in-depth of Aidan O'Brien, his two fillies (Main Edition and Octave) tick plenty of boxes. The pace will be cut-throat throughout with a number of these fillies having shown strong early fractions; none more so than the Wesley Ward-trained dirt winner Stillwater Cove. Ryan Moore no doubt took time to choose his mount, with Just Wonderful and FAIRYLAND very tough to split. The former remains unexposed, but the latter is already a Curragh Listed winner; so Seamie Heffernan is taken to notch a second success in this race after winning aboard Brave Anna in 2016.
  1. Fairyland
  2. Chicas Amigas
  3. Just Wonderful
