Verdict

Fascinating contest where the Mick Halford-trained Harzan for owner the Aga Khan and South Sea Pearl for trainer Aidan O'Brien can improve for their most recent starts, but the pair and leading connections may have to settle for place money behind the potential improver GUINEVERE. The Willie McCreery-trained Camelot filly can build on an impressive debut when she finished third of 14 behind subsequent Group 3 winner, Tarnawa.
