The market may well be a useful aid in examining this contest with several unexposed runners going to post along with Noverre Over There who lacks a recent run. Kieren Fox is a positive booking for Kitty Koo but it's hard to enthuse about a filly who has beaten just seven rivals home on her last two starts and more obvious claims are held by Rose Aurora who has, at least, been running consistently. Hedonist and Red Storm Rising both showed a little more at Ripon but the nominal selection in a race where none are ruled out with confidence is PRIVY SPEECH. She didn't fare too badly in a course maiden before making a satisfactory handicap bow at Lingfield and may well be better suited by the demands of this test.
