Verdict

Spiritual Girl delivered a decent Lingfield debut behind the impressive Lovely Pass but faces totally different conditions now, not to mention a host of interesting newcomers from top yards. The outcome will revolve around which of these well bred young ladies best handles what could be very testing conditions come race time. CITY IMAGE is a hopeful choice for the Hannon/Hughes team as she looks more likely to be ready first time up than some of her rivals, such as Cross Pattee and Sky Garden. Northern raider Star Up In The Sky cannot be omitted from calculations, whilst Botanica, yet another Hannon juvenile, is another well worthy of note.
