The brilliant Snow Fairy won this for Ed Dunlop but Zimira will need to do much better than she did on her reappearance at Lingfield to emulate her though the Polytrack may not have suited. Estrela finished third in that event where she didn't appear to last out the 1m4f and she should be better suited to today's trip. Zaina did well to land a Doncaster maiden from subsequent winner Minimise Risk and there's more to come from her while Nayarra is undoubtedly the form pick though a Group 1 penalty for her victory in Italy makes things difficult though she holds Minidress on her earlier run in the Nell Gwyn. Coquet has a Listed penalty for her victory at Newmarket but GATHERING has huge potential and is taken to add to her Newmarket maiden victory before going on to better things.
