Verdict

Few juveniles make a winning debut in a Listed contest as did CHRYSANTHEMUM over a mile here two weeks ago and she can remain unbeaten. David Wachman's Danehill Dancer filly had Peahen, Banimpire and Juliet Capulet behind and can confirm the form despite dropping down in trip and taking on better class rivals. Bible Belt looked a real prospect when storming away with a Roscommon maiden while Mick Channon won this in 2007 and will be expecting a big run from the consistent Sonning Rose. Wild Wind wasn't beaten far in the Group 1 Moyglare here and should find this easier though a bigger threat can emerge from Katla, who was caught on the line by Longhunter over 6f here a couple of weeks ago but should have no problems with the longer trip.
