Verdict

GROUPIE DOLL holds the key to this. She may not arrive in the same form as when landing the odds in last year's renewal, but none of the opposition can match Buff Bradley's mare if back to her best. With connections untroubled by an outside draw, a chance is taken she'll come good once again. That said, she still needs to reverse latest running at Keeneland with Judy The Beauty while Teddy's Promise should finish a lot closer this time round having been well beaten last year along with Great Hot. Dance To Bristol's winning run came to an end last month, but she'd won her first Grade 1 over 7f at Saratoga before that when narrowly beating Book Review and both could figure in this. Sweet Lulu is the least exposed having tasted defeat for the first time in five starts when runner-up on her latest outing, though she looks compromised by her outside post.
