Forecast

Just Wonderful (7/4), Bandiuc Eile (9/4), Chynna (7/1), Peach Tree (8/1), Lightning Amber (10/1), Vallambrosa (14/1), Fleeting (20/1), Dragon Roll (20/1), Bodhicitta (33/1)

Verdict
Having won on debut JUST WONDERFUL has been a shade disappointing since but many of her trainer's two-year-olds seemed a little slow to develop after a terrible winter before finding their feet recently and she is bred to greatly appreciate this step up in trip so is taken to find the required improvement to win this. Bandiuc Eile's run here last week is excellent form at Group Two level and she sets the standard on that basis. Chynna is another who caused a surprise when hitting the frame at Group level latest and she may be even better over 1m.
  1. Just Wonderful
  2. Bandiuc Eile
  3. Chynna
