Plenty of the top stables have runners in this affair so with the market giving most clues, CONTREDANSE is the call with Love Action and Clairvoyance also noted in the market. The selection has had two runs thus far with the latter in a valuable contest at Newmarket. She did not trouble the principals on that day though in fairness, that was a much better race than this. Love Action hasn't shown a great deal thus far but Richard Hannon's recent all-weather runners have carried confidence in the market so they have to be respected. Clairvoyance cost 80000 pounds as a yearling. She is related to plenty of winning milers. Fantastic Cruix was weak in the market on debut and may be one to note with next year in mind. Pursestrings is a half-sister to Instalment. That horse won on debut so there is at least some family history to the positive. Aviate holds no fancy entries but she is a full sister to Wingwalker so if she posesses any of that level of ability, she has to be a player. Contredanse is the pick in a race where we are happy to wait for a market check before placing investments.
