Verdict

With the benefit of experience, SACRED DANCE can open her account against some nicely-bred debutantes. She didn’t enjoy the fast ground when third at Haydock and Charlie Appleby won this with a short-priced favourite in 2016. Golden Times represents last year’s winning stable and has plenty of her stamina in her pedigree while Lola Paige was a 220,00gns yearling and is by Galileo. The Golden Horn filly Topkapi Star should stay but will find easier opportunities and Irish Eileen is already looking a bit exposed.
