Verdict

MERROIR is on an appealing mark and shaped as if in need of this step up in trip when mid-field at this course on her debut for Joseph O'Brien last month, so she's taken to build on that and shed her maiden tag at the twelfth attempt. Arctic Blaze, who has been runner-up the last twice, is an obvious danger along with Doyouthinkso.
