Verdict

Testing ground might hand the initiative to BWANA, who attracted support on his debut in the opening race of the Turf season at the Curragh but couldn't quite cope with the well-backed Beach Belle. Alainn showed good pace for a long way in that contest before being swamped inside the final furlong and she can get closer. Stormfly is out of a mare who has produced winners with her first four foals so she's likely to be fancied to keep up the family tradition while Lastdanceforme is also related to plenty of winners. Double Windsor has a sprinting pedigree with several juveniles amongst his successful relatives.
