Forecast

Teresa Mendoza (13/8), Chief Little Hawk (9/4), Coill Avon (13/2), Giorgio Vasari (8/1), Sweet Gardenia (9/1), Sloane Peterson (18/1), Coulthard (28/1), New Treasure (66/1), All Things Bright (66/1)

Verdict

Not the strongest of Group 3s. TERESA MENDOZA looked a good prospect when making a winning debut at the Curragh and is preferred to Chief Little Hawk, who won a valuable event at Naas on Sunday. Sweet Gardenia is progressing well and is another to consider.

  1. TERESA MENDOZA (IRE)
  2. CHIEF LITTLE HAWK (USA)
  3. SWEET GARDENIA
