Verdict

Tim Easterby won this with the useful Ventura Mist last year and ZEELA can follow suit. The latter kept on well to claim second place at Pontefract on her debut and makes more appeal than either Clodovil Doll or Featsdontfailmenow. Ventura Shadow and Harry's Dancer, a half-sister to five winners, are both newcomers to note but Pastoral Girl is a sister to the smart 5f winner Lilbourne Lass and could prove best of the debutantes.
