Verdict

FAIR PASS was no match for the winner at Kempton on her debut but showed enough to suggest she can win at this level and Marco Bottiā€™s filly gets the vote. The others with racecourse experience are difficult to recommend but one of the newcomers can figure. Dark Lady is a half-sister to a winning sprinter and So Sharp is related to useful stablemate Nate The Great but Vividly is bred to be best over further. Jouska is a half-sister to three winners and Miss Paxman has plenty of speed in her family.
