Verdict

JOOHAINA has a smart pedigree and cost 160,000 euros. She made an encouraging debut on the Polytrack in June and should have gained enough from the run to take this. Dutch Romance also made a promising start on this sort of ground at Newbury and it will be a surprise if she's not involved in the finish while Aertex looked in need of the experience at Goodwood last month and is expected to do much better. Alumina is a half-sister to a winning juvenile and out of a winning miler but Vera Lou's pedigree is all about middle-distances and she's one for the future.
