Verdict

The Aidan O'Brien-trained CAREFULLY, looks to have been found an ideal opportunity run a big race and off what looks like a lenient mark on handicap debut. The daughter of War Front can get off the mark at the fifth time of asking for connections holding off the probable challenge from the Gordon Elliott-trained, Pensylvania Avenue who can emerge as the biggest danger. Han Solo, Red Sole Diva and Jungle Jungle appear genuine sorts who look capable of hitting the frame.
  1. Carefully
  2. Pensylvania Avenue
  3. Red Sole Diva
