Verdict

Richard Johnson picks up the ride on DESIGNER DESTINY. The latter was beaten only a nose at Limerick on Boxing Day and can make a winning debut for Harry Whittington. Docte Dina looks next best of the rest with racecourse experience though never troubled the winner when fifth over track and trip on her debut. Hope And Gloria and Martha Brae can only improve while Sweet Spirit was placed between the flags over a year ago and debuts under Rules. The newcomers make little appeal on breeding.
