It's noticeable that Paul Hanagan is on board PANDORO DE LAGO rather than Richard Fahey's other entry, Abdicate. There is pace on both sides of the pedigree and additionally she is a half sister to multiple winners over a mile. She has shaped well in her two runs so far and gets the vote ahead of Sahafh. The Godolphin runner cost $475,000 and may be the biggest threat considering she's had two good frame placed runs to date. Elsewhere, Lady Amakhala went close last time in the dying strides and could challenge for the honours.
