Verdict

It's hard to oppose LAH TI DAR back against her own sex after her fine run when runner-up in the St Leger. Last year's winner Hydrangea shouldn't be ruled out despite a below par season with the yard in better form since she last ran. Pilaster and Kitesurf are both dangers if they handle these conditions.
