Verdict

Glamorous Spirit only beat a small field on debut and whilst that was impressive and the form has been franked since, it is BAHAMIAN BABE who can continue her unbeaten run; Danehill Destiny, Heart Shaped and Rebecca De Winter also make it to the shortlist. Better ground seemed to show the selection in a more positive light at York recently as she pipped Langs Lash to that Listed prize. She didn't hang like she has on previous runs and she has the natural speed to run well here. There are of course many potential dangers, of which Danehill Destiny stands out. William Haggas has his horses running well going into this week and this unbeaten filly comes here with every chance. She, along with Rebecca De Winter and the selection all have high draws, and this may prove to be key given that the last three winners have all come from double-figure draws. Excellent Show may not have beaten much to date but she has still done it well, whilst Baileys Cacao and Lucky Leigh both won on their debuts and like most of the field are open to plenty of improvement. Tommy Stack has Nubar Lady and Sugar Free, but both have plenty to find, whilst Heart Shaped should love this quick ground and cannot be ruled out. As tough a sprint as you're likely to find, but Bahamian Babe, a cheap purchase, can continue to flourish.
