Verdict

This has been run twice and John Oxx has won both of them. The stable run two newcomers here, the Dylan Thomas filly If Or When and Kalaroa, a half-sister to the useful Kalabaya and from the family of the brilliant Kalanisi. The latter should prove best at this stage though the experience of QUICK GLIMPSE is difficult to ignore and Dermot Weld's Galileo filly, who has been headed inside the final furlong on her last two starts over 1m2f, can make all and lose her maiden tag. Euphrasia didn't take to Polytrack last time and is better judged on her earlier run behind Purple on soft ground at Killarney.
