Verdict

This looks between PERSIA and Purdey's Gift, both winners on the Flat who shaped well on their debuts in this sphere at Naas and Fairyhouse respectively. Persia boasts a significantly higher rating on the level than Denise Foster's charge and, while the gulf in class between them is unlikely to be so wide in this sphere, he is preferred. Hgranca de Thaix could be in line for minor place money.
