Verdict

The form of ZANBAQ's second in the Sandringham has already received a few boosts and she's very much the one to beat. German-raider Novemba ran quite well in the Duchess of Cambridge at the Royal meeting and she should be in the shake-up here, while the selection's stablemate Kind Gesture could have enough improvement in her to make an impact at this higher level.

  1. ZANBAQ (IRE)
  2. NOVEMBA (GER)
  3. KIND GESTURE
