Forecast

Pass The Gin (9/4), Princess Power (7/2), Wedding Date (4/1), Probability (8/1), Society Queen (8/1), Key To Power (8/1), Be Like Me (12/1), Deira Surprise (14/1), Sylvia's Mother (20/1), No More Regrets (33/1)

Verdict
The pace-angle in this race will come from the appropriately named turf newcomer Probability, with Jo Tuite's well-drawn filly Sylvia's Mother another likely to be spotted early. Both Princess Power and Pass The Gin are very closely matched on recent C&D form and should be there or thereabouts. However, we'll chance the more moderately drawn top-weight WEDDING DATE who can hopefully negotiate the required gaps past weakening horses, and deploy her sharp turn of foot at the most crucial stage.
  1. Wedding Date
  2. Princess Power
  3. Pass The Gin
