    Verdict

    Enjoy The Moment has found the minimum trip too short in her two runs to date so should be suited by the step-up. Doncaster Rosa made a promising debut at Beverley but finished last on fast ground at Doncaster and has been given a break. Barbarella attempted to make all on good to soft at Thirsk and stayed on when headed 1f out while Portugueseprincess showed plenty of dash at Wolverhampton and looks the type to make good progress. ALCANCE has a very speedy pedigree and hails from a yard in top form so she's given the nod though Entrancing is related to six winners including Cheveley Park winner Hooray. Loco Dempsey and Pettinger are others to note in an interesting maiden.
