Verdict

Princess Annabelle's third at Ffos Las is the best form of those that have had a run and she should make the frame again. But you'd expect Philip Hobbs' Calusa Star to know his job at the first time of asking, though he looks nothing special on breeding. Shipton has a Flat pedigree and changed hands for 25,000gns earlier this year so warrants respect but the vote goes to MISTRAL REINE. Lucy Wadham's filly is by King's Theatre and from the same filly as SunAlliance Hurdle winner Gaelstrom. She doesn't look overly taxed on debut.
