Verdict

All Nighter and Verse Of Love have the best form in the book, but Rio Grande and Democretes may improve past them both today. However, one of the newcomers may be good enough to take this and a chance is taken on SWISS SPIRIT. He's a half-brother to four winners including stablemate and Group 3 winner Swiss Diva and is just preferred to Sovereign Debt, who is related to three winners and cost 105,000gns. Godolphin run two with jockey bookings suggesting Pacific Islands is first choice even though Genius Step is half-brother to a Group 3 winner in Italy.
