Verdict

ISLAND SUNSET is difficult to oppose from what we have seen so far and is taken to maintain her 100 per cent record at the main expense of Officer In Command and Confidentiality. The selection has been well placed by Willie Muir to win her maiden, plus two fillies' handicaps. She goes on the Polytrack, though she is untried here, and her running style suggests that this extra two furlongs will be in her favour, despite pedigree suggesting that her stamina will be questionable. Given her progressive profile we would like to be with her once again today. Officer In Command was a course and distance scorer last month and went close from a 4lb lower mark than today's next time out. We expect him to get competitive once again, but he is probably going to have to improve a bit to win. Confidentiality has a couple of course and distance successes on his CV, one of which was last year from just 1lb lower than today's mark. However, recent efforts suggest that he will just come up short once again this time, so we'll stick with Island Sunset.
