Verdict

Simply Black is one of the more exposed although she did finish ahead of Diamondsinthesky when runner-up over track and trip last time. She should be in the mix once again, but GROUNDWORKER may improve past her. The latter will need to step up on his recent efforts in higher grade maiden races at Kempton but Sylvester Kirk's colt looks capable of doing so. Astral Rose and Cheeky Peta's have plenty to find at the weights and are easily dismissed.
