Betting

Forecast

Eesha's Smile (5/4), Mrs Hoo (11/4), Illusions (8/1), Loving Pearl (8/1), Lola's Theme (9/1), Queen of Jumeirah (10/1)

Verdict
A very tight little race and you can make pretty solid cases for all six runners. Richard Fahey has a strong hand and has won this race three times in the last four years. Both Illusions and Mrs Hoo should do better in time and are respected. Marginal preference is for the hat-trick seeking EESHA'S SMILE who is chasing a hat-trick after two wins in novice events and shapes like this stiff finish will suit.
  1. Eesha's Smile
  2. Mrs Hoo
  3. Illusions
