Verdict

SUGAREE has improved with each of her three starts, most recently landing a Leopardstown maiden in decisive fashion, and she earns the vote with further progress on the cards now pitched into a handicap. The progressive Youcrackmeup is greatly respected, despite going up 10 lb for her recent Galway success, while No Niki No is third choice ahead of Marvelosa.
