Verdict

Success in last week's 1000 Guineas at Newmarket will have boosted the Hannon team's confidence in Zurigha. She won her prep race at Kempton with the minimum of fuss well ahead of the re-opposing Cocktail Queen and we'll find out how good she is today. She also makes more appeal than the other UK challengers Melbourne Memories and Waterway Run, but the likely favourite ESOTERIQUE is one to stay on the right side of. Unbeaten in a couple of starts, including a Group 3 race here a fortnight ago, she has yet to be asked a serious question and looks another class act in the making for trainer Andre Fabre. Kenhope has beaten several of these this year but the likes of Tasaday, Tuna Papita and Topaze Blanche may well improve past her today while Alterite and Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Flotilla are others to consider.
