Verdict
The only one of these to have won on soft ground, if that's what it is, is Porterinthejungle, who was successful on it last year but may need this run after a break. In the hope the cheekpieces liven her up a little, DRAGON ROLL is given a chance to bounce back after a poor effort last time out. Her earlier form is solid enough and she seems to handle some cut. Manard and Queen Mia both need a look in the market as support for either needs to be noted, and it'll be a surprise if we've seen the best of Ozone yet.
