Verdict

Copacabana Dancer’s recent fifth at Windsor is the best form on offer of those with racecourse experience but it’s a not a high standard to match and one of the newcomers may prove good enough. Of those, Frida Kahlo represents an in-form yard and should go well while Silvestre De Sousa partners The Lazy Monkey and the latter could also figure. But LEXI THE ONE is related to winners and Richard Fahey’s filly gets a speculative vote, especially if supported in the betting.
