Verdict

Bheleyf is arguably the best of the pair with previous experience in this opener but that's not saying much so we'll concentrate on the three newcomers. Boleyn is by Derby winner Sir Percy out of a French mare with a middle-distance pedigree so could find this on the sharp side while there is also a lot of stamina in the breeding of the cheaply-bought Wordsaplenty. So the vote goes to BELLE VOIR, who may also need a little further but is related to several winners and may just prove a bit better than this grade in time.
