Verdict

The newcomers Ekhraaj and Kahraba are both worth noting, especially the latter as she's a half-sister to a Ribblesdale winner, but the safest option could be to stick with WHISPERED. She failed by the narrowest of margins to catch Jiwen, who has since won again, at Nottingham last time and looks capable of opening her account here. Sohar showed some improvement at Newmarket last month, but both Deck Walk and Cardrona took a step backwards on their latest starts. Kalamkas could prove a bigger threat as she looked one-paced over a mile on her debut and will relish today's longer trip.
