Verdict

Dermot Weld won this a year ago with Libano but she needs very testing conditions and the stable's Stunning View may prove a better option this time despite a poor reappearance on heavy ground at the Curragh. The ultra-game and consistent Luisant was third a year ago but conditions were all against her and this is much more like her surface. CRYSTAL GAL has been finding Group 1 company much too hot and has also been racing over much further. A return to this trip and grade looks just what she needs to get back on the winning track. Separate Ways is at the peak of her form though whether she will have the pace for this is another matter as her latest success was gained over 1m1f.
