Verdict

FLOOD DEFENCE ran easily her best race in this sphere when second at Sedgefield last month and has the scope to do better still judged on Flat form, so she earns the vote. Luck of Clover and Paper Promise are a couple of others to consider.

  1. FLOOD DEFENCE (IRE)
  2. LUCK OF CLOVER
  3. PAPER PROMISE (IRE)
