Simply Beautiful (5/2), Delphinia (3/1), Tarnawa (7/2), Moteo (4/1), Invitation (10/1), Credenza (14/1)

Verdict
DELPHINIA can take advantage of the weight she receives from some of her rivals to land this contest for Aiden O'Brien. There was plenty to like about the way she coped with Epsom in the Oaks where she was doing good work in the closing stages despite some disadvantages in-running. Moteo is the obvious danger and her consistency means she will likely be involved in the finish but this looks tough for her to win giving weights away all round. Tarnawa has the beating of a few of these on their Naas meeting in May and is likely to give a good account of herself. She too must give weight to some of her rivals.
  1. Delphinia
  2. Tarnawa
  3. Moteo
