Burnt Sienna produced one decent run on good ground and has been bogged down since while Sister Slew found little when headed after attempting to make all at Gowran. Cocktail Hour is tackling fast ground for the first time on her ninth start and is an obvious threat to all if handling the conditions though she may find IL PALAZZO too good for her. Aidan O'Brien's filly doesn't look a stable star but she definitely improved when runner-up to Violet Hour at Naas last week and with further progress likely she looks the one to be on.
