Although by Galileo, Flower Bouquet isn't one of her stable's better-bred fillies and she'll be fortunate to find a race though there's not much strength-in-depth in this. Attire made a promising debut here last May but didn't come close in two backend maidens, also on this track. IVETA should improve as this will be only her fourth start and she unshipped her rider on her debut. Her close second to Fastidious at Gowran in September would probably be good enough. Poly Pomona has been running reasonably well in handicaps here, though only at a moderate level.
