Verdict

Difficult to see this not being between C&D victors, NISIOR DONN and Victoria's Secret both winners here since the turn of the year and both, clearly, in good form. The Mick Halford-trained, La Novia, another winner over C&D appears to be the biggest danger, while Hey Pretty looks capable of hitting the frame.
  1. Nisior Donn
  2. Victorious Secret
  3. La Novia
