Verdict

There's probably not much to separate two very talented fillies in MAGICAL and Sea Of Class but given the former has a few runs under her belt already this season and the latter isn't guaranteed to get the race run to suit, Aidan O'Brien's filly shades the vote. Crystal Ocean will be hard to kick out the frame and he makes most appeal from the remainder while Waldgeist and Zabeel Prince come into consideration if the ground gets very soft, particularly from an each-way perspective.
  1. Magical
  2. Sea of Class
  3. Crystal Ocean
