Verdict

This looks very unappetising from a punting perspective with any amount of chances. Russian Rave looks up against it at the weights and ESTRELA is a hopeful suggestion. Roger Charlton's filly travelled well in the lead for plenty of the race in Listed grade at Goodwood last time before folding tamely late on and this 2f drop in trip should be ideal if similarly aggressive tactics are adopted once again. William Haggas has always thought well of Diala but the daughter of Iffraaj has shown little in Group and Listed company this term. However, this is the first time she's had the conditions in which she was successful last season and it would no surprise to witness a far bolder effort now. The improving Laverre, Dank, disappointing last time, and the consistent Savanna Days are others to note.
