Verdict

Plenty of strong form on view but the filly ZAINDERA is handed the vote by virtue of her very encouraging debut behind the classy Tapestry here in July when Invisible Flash was behind. Atlantic Sea finished runner-up to the promising Giovanni Boldini at Dundalk though there were only three runners. Meihua is an interesting newcomer for Jim Bolger as she's related to plenty of winners while Aidan O'Brien runs Guerre, who cost 180,000 dollars.
