Forecast

Antonia De Vega (5/6), Eva Maria (11/2), Bighearted (8/1), Specialise (9/1), Maybe Today (12/1), La Lune (14/1), Nette Rousse (18/1), Makawee (28/1), Miss Latin (33/1), Lady of Shalott (40/1), Chicago Doll (50/1), Clarion (66/1)

Verdict
On all known form this race looks at the mercy of ANTONIA DE VEGA, only narrowly beaten in a Group 1 in Germany on her final run last season. On official figures she is 10lb clear of the next highest rated in the field and meets her rivals at level weights. Specialise improved nicely last season and there could be more to come this term. She represents a powerful stable and is respected, while both Big Hearted and Eva Maria are decent and should give a good account. The unknown qunatity is the twice raced La Lune who looked a nice propsect when winning at Salisbury in May of last year but hasn't been seen since.
  1. Antonia De Vega
  2. Specialise
  3. Maybe Today
