          Verdict

          There looks to be some very speedy fillies in this and the majority are open to further improvement but SANDIVA appears to set the standard on her defeat of Heart Focus in a Listed race at Naas, where she quickened nicely and won with a bit in hand. Frankie Dettori has nominated her has his best ride this week. Wedding Ring represents his former employers and looked useful when winning her maiden at Newmarket while the O'Brien team expect the smartly-bred Wonderfully to step up on a narrow victory at Fairyhouse. Richard Hughes has chosen Windsor winner Midnite Angel ahead of Suite but the latter boasts decent form and has place claims while Joyeuse easily justified strong market support on her debut at Lingfield. The betting may be a guide as to whether any of the others, including dual winner Lucky Kristale, are expected to make an impact in this grade.
