Verdict

It's hard to be confident about a contest packed with fillies of considerable potential but a chance is taken on DINVAR DIVA. A daughter of Dalakhani, she wasn't given a hard time on her Leicester debut last autumn, staying on in eye-catching style to claim fourth spot in a decent maiden. Everything about her that day screamed three-year-old and she is certain to relish this step up to middle distances. She is also preferred by William Buick to stablemate, Apothecary, already a dual winner. Vow created a fine impression on her Newbury debut but that came under totally different conditions and she is worth opposing at the likely prices. The Charlton team has made a pleasing start to the season and Estrela looked one to follow last season when scoring at Newbury, likewise Colima on her successful soft-ground Nottingham debut.
