Verdict

A very tight little handicap from top to bottom. MISS LILLIE could be good enough to take this under Oisin Murphy as though she scrambled home in a Newmarket maiden and it looked rather ambitious to send her into Group 3 company, she didn't run at all badly and this is a big drop in class. Stosur has only won on Polytrack at Cagnes-sur-Mer but Nirva won her maiden on this track before being outclassed in a Listed event at York. Meeting Waters has only raced on quick ground but has shown enough to suggest she can get involved and none of the trio at the bottom of the handicap can be dismissed as all look capable of better.
