Verdict

Prospera appears to be improving with experience but her future may lie in handicaps and it will be a surprise if one of several nicely-bred newcomers doesn't prove good enough to land what may not be a particularly strong maiden. John Gosden's Nickels And Dimes is a half-sister to the useful Kalahari Gold among others and should be thereabouts but ALTA LILEA is just as interesting. Mark Johnston's Galileo filly is closely related to some stout stayers and there's every chance she'll handle this soft ground better than most. She can make a winning start with Puligny and Thakana making most appeal of the remainder.
