Verdict

It's significant that Ryan Moore rides the 2008 winner and 2009 runner-up Crystal Capella in preference to Eleanora Duse and the mare was good enough to beat Dar Re Mi on last year's seasonal reappearance. High Heeled was fourth last term and may have to settle for a similar position with the ground likely to ride faster than ideal and it would be no surprise to see the third, Saphira's Fire, finish in front of her again. It was a little disappointing that Meeznah didn't fare better at Doncaster over a mile six where the second home RUMOUSH didn't seem to quite get home but Kieren Fallon may not have made enough use of her that day and she could fare better with her regular pilot back on board. Myplacelater and Barshiba are respected but Marcus Tregoning's filly is given another chance to fulfil the promise that she showed when landing the Feilden in April and gain a first Group success.
