WUNDERKIND showed nothing in three juvenile starts over 7f. Her pedigree suggests she'll be better suited by this trip and she begins her handicap career on the mark of a plater - she may be much better than that and gets a tentative vote. Elle Rebelle is just 4lb higher than her victory here in June and Cam Hardie's claim takes care of the extra though she was engaged to run in the 4.30 here yesterday while Bold Ring, who has won a dozen races, is on his lowest mark since 2010. Chanceuse is consistent enough but has yet to win on Turf and though Big City Boy wasn't beaten far over 7f here in July he's still a maiden after 16 starts.
