Verdict

JUST GORGEOUS has been highlighted as a nice type, which is hardly surprising as she's by Galileo out of the brilliant Halfway To Heaven. She's engaged in several major races and can complete what should be a tremendous night for her stable by taking this on her debut. Carla Bianca is an obvious threat as she was narrowly beaten by Australia on her debut last season before a very good run in the Group One Moyglare. However, she failed to fire on her reappearance at Dundalk where she didn't settle. She's better than that and will prove hard to beat while Fastnet Mist, who wasn't far behind at Dundalk on her debut, should improve significantly for the run. Diylawa is another who will have benefited from her opening effort behind Afternoon Sunlight at Limerick and the winner has since won a Group Three.
