Verdict

Plenty of guesswork involved here with question marks hanging over all seven runners. Gordy Bee and Gracelightening are both maidens, but Miss Bootylishes, Elusive Fame, Mudhish and Border Owl are all C&D winners, though haven't managed a single win between them since last July. Given they all look thoroughly exposed, the vote goes to LILLI PALMER. She at least is still improving, though Mike Murphy's filly can be no more than a tentative selection as she's taking a big step up in class.
