Verdict

DRISH MELODY defied big odds when getting off the mark in a C&D nursery 5 weeks ago, seemingly no fluke about it as she ran out an authoritative winner. On that evidence, she may have more to offer moving forward and earns the vote to follow up. Pilbara Gold and Holy Divine are others fancied to get involved.

  1. DRISH MELODY (IRE)
  2. PILBARA GOLD (IRE)
  3. HOLY DIVINE (IRE)
