Verdict

John Oxx has a fine record in this and don't be surprised by a much-improved run from Gelenschik, who found 1m2f too short on her debut at the Curragh. It's a surprise that Jim Bolger has been unable to get a race out of STELLAR GLOW but the daughter of Sea The Stars has been competing at a very much higher level, including when runner-up to Qualify at the Curragh last season, and should enhance her paddock value with a victory here. On A Pedestal has looked a difficult ride for Ana O'Brien on her last two starts and, though capable of winning races, she has it all to do against the selection here.
