Verdict

Rae Guest's Cape Factor looks up against it and J Wonder will need to step up on her narrow defeat of Al Thakhira in the Fred Darling at Newbury. But Queen Catrine finished ahead of Wonderfully when a creditable third in the Prix Marcel Boussac here in October when Indonesienne beat Lesstalk In Paris. There was little between the latter pair once again in a prep-race here last month when Straight Thinking split them and Andre Fabre's filly also has claims. Veda bounced back with a cosy victory last month and is preferred to Xcellence while Bawina is yet another to consider in a wide-open contest. But AVENIR CERTAIN looks a bit of value at the early prices as she remains unbeaten in lesser company. She'll need to improve to get the better of stablemate Lesstalk In Paris but could go close at a big price.
