Tendu, Exoplanet Blue and Forbidden Love all command respect on debut but the experience of EVENING RAIN is taken to gain the day. Godolphin's Raven's Pass filly shaped with significant promise on her course and distance introduction and should improve considerably for the run. Joe Fanning is a fascinating booking for the filly, who is preferred to Hundi and Penny Pepper, both of whom also delivered efforts of promise last time. Stocking is another potential improver while Vesnina, Richard Hughes' choice from the Hannon trio, is dangerous to ignore despite disappointing last time.
