Verdict

It's hard to look beyond VOLKOVKA, who put in a good shift when third in a listed race at Doncaster last month, form which is head-and-shoulders above anything these rivals have achieved. A line can be drawn through Windswept Girl's latest effort here and she is clear second choice ahead of fellow bumper winner Little Else.

  1. VOLKOVKA (FR)
  2. WINDSWEPT GIRL (IRE)
  3. LITTLE ELSE
