Verdict

A really tricky contest this but the vote goes to the highly consistent CORAL BEACH who certainly deserves a moment in the limelight after six placed runs this term. Joint top-weight Tosen Shauma is considered and this drop back to a stiff 6f could be right up her street. Eagle Song is another who should enjoy dropping back from 7f having narrowly failed last time out.
  1. Coral Beach
  2. Tosen Shauna
  3. Eagle Song
