Verdict

Some nicely-bred newcomers contest this but the prevailing conditions will favour experience. Harmonic Note and Rehn's Nest are the pair with two runs under their belts and both have done well enough to be considered. The former was in front of her rival when runner-up to Starbright over a mile here last month and should come out on top again. HANKY PANKY, a half-sister to six winners including the brilliant Giant's Causeway, made her debut over the C&D in June and caught the eye. She'll be better for that experience and can just get the better of Salhooda, who made a very promising debut behind Greek Goddess on heavy ground at Killarney.
