Verdict

There appears to be two races in one here, with several of these likely to come up well short of this class, but some very interesting fillies with big entries that could be taken up should they go well here. Manuela De Vega has the potential to get involved if ready first time, while Fanny Logan looks the pick of the John Gosden pair, though both she and Mehdeeyih can have cases made. Vivid Diamond is a potential improver who could get closer than her price suggests, while Grace And Danger is also very much of interest. However, SECRET THOUGHTS has been crying out for this sort of trip and now she gets it, she is taken to score for a trainer who has a tremendous record in this race.
  1. Secret Thoughts
  2. Fanny Logan
  3. Vivid Diamond
