Verdict

Experience can tell for PRESENTING PEARL and she is taken to go one better than her close second on her debut at Market Rasen. Potters Sapphire already has improvement to find, so it may be down to the likes of Sunshade and Floral Queen to throw down the gauntlet to the mount of Aiden Coleman. The first named represents a yard that has won this race four times in the last eight years and again potentially sends out the principle player with their regally-owned contender. The stoutly-bred Rose Tree is another to bear in mind, especially now that her yard has the proven capability to have one ready to strike at the first time of asking in races of this nature.
