Verdict

Shouda showed enough on his belated debut to suggest he can win a race of this nature in time and Zakeeta has won twice over hurdles already but may find things happening a bit quick for her here. Eye-shields are applied for the first time to Lay Claim and he could figure but TRULY MAGNIFICENT is the most interesting. She has raced twice without success in the USA over shorter trips but her dam is a sister to the high-class filly and 1m4f Belmont Stakes winner Rags To Riches and Brendan Duke's charge could prove a different proposition over middle-distances. She gets the vote to make a winning start in this country. Davana was engaged to run here yesterday.
