Verdict

HANDMAIDEN found only Group 1 National Stakes entry Quorto too good over track and trip on her debut. She should make a bold bold bid along with the latter’s stablemate Lover's Knot, who was also runner-up over course and distance on her introduction with No Way Jose behind. Poetry and Strict Tempo have both shown ability while Yourtimeisnow is a half-sister to four winners and preferred to Wingreen and Lady Cosette of the newcomers.
