Forecast

Lady De Vesci (5/2), Dromana (5/2), Sleepy Head (6/1), Chaparral Dream (7/1), Too Precious (8/1), Royal Admiral (8/1), Maid In Manhattan (10/1), Saint Irini (10/1), Nulife (12/1), Nevsky (16/1), Fake Media (16/1), Alwarda (25/1), War Room (25/1), Gallant Girl (33/1), Messerati Kid (40/1), Manorov (66/1), Sarzana (66/1)

Verdict
SLEEPY HEAD successfully carried this weight to success in the race 12 months ago and after a very pleasing C&D second last time out she could hardly arrive in better form so will take plenty of beating in this attempt to go one better. Unexposed Dromana is a big danger with a step up from 1m likely to bring further improvement and she doesn't need too much after finishing second last time out. Lady De Vesci defeated the selection latest and despite a weight pull against her she won with enough in hand to still rate a likely sort.
  1. Sleepy Head
  2. Dromana
  3. Lady De Vesci
