Verdict

Sentaril looked a tremendous prospect when winning her first two races and finishing runner-up in the Jersey Stakes but she's been very disappointing in her two subsequent starts, including at Doncaster last time when she was a couple of lengths adrift of Instance with Radio Gaga a further length behind and I'm So Glad and Bonnie Brae trailing a long way behind. The latter is better than she showed that day and if the ground turns heavy she would have a real chance though it's very rare for anything other than a three-year-old to win this. PUNITA won her only start last year and made a belated debut in a Newmarket handicap in June. She won with a bit to spare that day and though needing to make major progress to take this she is handed the vote to do so.
