Verdict

The ability of TEARS OF THE SUN to handle this surface has to be taken on trust, but she'll take all the beating if doing so. Her recent second at Lingfield is easily the best recent form on offer. Prestige Roses had ran well on her debut at Yarmouth only to disappoint when sent off a short-price favourite at Lingfield while Volodina finished tailed off here last time having gone close at this track before that. Windshield is one to note for any support on her racecourse debut.
