Verdict

It's hard to make a strong case for any of this bunch. EMPERATRIZ has recorded all her best efforts in soft going including last season's win at Newcastle so she gets the token vote back on this surface for the first time this year. Perpetual Ambition has scope for improvement on only his second start handicapping but Gabrial The Boss has posted his best form over 7f so far. The same goes for Admirable Art but Red Tulip could figure if taking to the ground and makes more appeal than Unison.
