Verdict

Brazilian Breeze did enough behind Cannon Hill at Gowran to suggest she should be winning soon though it could be in a handicap. Gatamalata hasn't made the expected progress this season after contesting the top juvenile fillies' races last term though this is a drop in class. Marvada's last two runs have been over the minimum trip but she's shown promise and must be considered though it's time SHELLEY BEACH was losing her maiden tag and it should be tonight as quicker ground may enable her to use her pace to better effect. Olfa made a fair start at Limerick last month and will have come on well for the run.
