Verdict

A runner-up at Hamilton, Nearly A Gift never figured on her latest start and Busy Bimbo makes more appeal after showing improvement at York last week. However, one of the newcomers could prove good enough and the vote goes to GOAL HANGER. She's related to seven winners and an entry in next month's Super Sprint at Newbury suggests she's well thought of. Eastern Destiny is a half-sister to the useful Rosa Grace, who won on her debut, while Lady Gorgeous has three winning relatives and is another to note. Quiet Appeal cost 35,000 euros and any support for her could prove significant.
