Forecast

Who's Steph (8/11), Peach Tree (7/2), Tarnawa (4/1), Delphinia (14/1), Chablis (20/1), Magnolia Springs (20/1), Credenza (25/1)

Verdict
A smart performer at three, WHO'S STEPH looked like a filly who could prove effective at the very top level when absolutely hacking up in a Gowran Listed race latest and she can prove too strong for the three-year-olds here despite giving them a stone. Peach Tree looks the pick of the O'Brien quartet on jockey bookings and form and is a big danger given she would receive just 4lb from the selection in a handicap. Tarnawa has improved plenty in two races this season and also merits respect.
