Verdict

Aquarius made a winning debut at Newmarket but blotted her copybook when refusing to race and unseating at the start at Ascot. Even if on her best behaviour she faces a stiff task here as she still has to concede weight to SEDUCTIVE, who made a promising start when runner-up at Lingfield last month and should go close with normal progress. Roxy Art struggled from an outside draw at the same meeting at Lingfield but ran well at the latter track on her debut while better is expected from Unbeatable Dancer today. As her name suggests, Sister of The Sign is related to the prolific Sign Of The Kodiac and may prove best of the newcomers.
