Verdict

EURO CHARLINE is hard to ignore in this after running a massive race in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes over track and trip. Beaten only a length by Rizeena, Marco Botti's filly must go very close with a similar effort. She has the beating of Kiyoshi on that form but Woodland Aria should have improved from her sixth behind Integral in a Group 2 here last time. The latter looks the main threat despite Gifted Girl having the form over longer trips to figure. Listed winner Zurigha and Veiled Intrigue may find life tough in this company while Amulet looks outclassed.
