Verdict

Euphrasia was a 33/1 chance when landing this a year ago for which she is penalised. Morga has won twice over hurdles recently and is on the upgrade while We'll Go Walking ran her best race to date in a Listed contest at Gowran last month and is also improving. Dermot Weld is represented by Tarfasha and Tahaany with preference for the former, who will have found 7f much too short last season though still managed a victory at Galway. She's related to several useful middle-distance winners and should have a good season. DAZZLING didn't live up to the promise of her debut victory last term but reappeared with a sparkling effort at Navan where she made all to beat Cristal Fashion with Achnaha behind. She's a 14/1 chance for the Oaks and that price will shrink if she gains an expected victory here.
