Verdict

Karl Burke sends Odeliz over from Yorkshire and the Longchamp Listed winner will enjoy the conditions more than most. WANNABE BETTER took some time to lose her maiden tag but ended the last campaign in excellent form winning three times including twice in Listed class. She had Euphrasia behind at Naas in October and is only 2lb worse off so should confirm the form and take this. Three-year-olds have a very good record and Aidan O'Brien has chosen Dance With Another She had today's rival Achnaha almost a length behind off levels here last October but the latter, along with Dermot Weld's Naas winner Vote Often, has to be respected with her allowances.
