Verdict

Lanett Lady is comfortably the form pick and wasn't beaten far in a Listed event over the C&D a couple of weeks ago. Captain Cullen has also been going well and his experience will be put to good use and Shukhov has been progressing well enough for him to get involved. However, there are some superbly-bred newcomers here and one of them, NEPHRITE, a half-brother to top-class sprinter Cape Of Good Hope, gets the vote. Mississippi, an expensive purchase and out of a Listed winning sprinter, is another to note while the filly Wave looks one for the future.
