Verdict

PERFECT GIRL was slowly away and showed her inexperience when asked to take closer order at Carlisle but stayed on nicely once the penny dropped and will know more here. She gets the nod to open her account ahead of newcomer Percy's Lass, who is by the increasingly influential Sir Percy and a half-sister to a winning miler. Explosive Lady is closely related to a couple of winners and is another debutante worth considering if the market speaks in her favour.
