Verdict

Oh Star has produced two good efforts on Polytrack over 7f and is bred for that trip but she was finishing strongly last time so connections must believe she'll stay. Her stablemate Deuce Again is bred for middle-distances and is a half-sister to two winners while Elshaadin showed promise over a mile at Haydock and this superbly-bred daughter of Dalakhani, who cost 550,000gns, will be suited by stepping up to this trip. HOOP OF COLOUR would be worth a fortune at the paddocks with a victory under her belt as she's the sixth foal of a mare who has produced five winners, including a Grade 1 winner in the USA. She made a reasonable start at Windsor when looking in need of the experience and can go one better.
