Connections of ESTONIA will be hoping Freddie's Girl is given leave to make the running as the former is at her best coming with a late run off a fast pace. She scored over C&D last time and can follow-up if the race is run to suit. Black Baccara gets the assistance of Kieren Fallon who will be hoping to improve on his mount's recent string of placed efforts, but Garstang looks a bigger threat dropping back in distance given he's registered his last five wins over today's minimum trip. Even Bolder is closely matched with the temperamental Ajjaadd on earlier form, while Sherjawy looks in the handicapper's grip.
