      Verdict

      Ballet Shoes won this for Ballydoyle last year and the yard are triple-handed this time. Delphinia and Enticed are once-raced and certain to have benefited from the experience but PINK DOGWOOD looks the stable's selected. The full-sister to Irish Derby hero Latrobe never looked like catching the impressive Lady Kaya over 7f here but this extra furlong should be just what's required and she can go one better. Pleasurable, another daughter of Camelot, has run better than her finishing positions suggest and will also appreciate the step-up in trip though it's her stable companion Trethias who could provide the main threat as she was staying on strongly over 7f at Gowran after being out with the washing for much of the race. Softly Strong caught the eye here last month and will have come on a bundle.
