Verdict

All of these step up to a mile for the first time. Encore L'Amour and Nelsons Trick failed to convince over 7f last time and both are passed over on that evidence while Shahah faded quickly in the closing stages over 6f at Goodwood last time. But breeding suggests OPPORTUNA will relish the longer trip and Tom Dascombe's filly gets the vote having finished with a late rattle over 6f at Haydock when just failing to catch the winner. Jersey Jewel benefits from Cam Hardie's allowance on her racecourse debut and is one to note.
