Paul Hanagan and Richard Fahey haven't taken long to get back on the winning trail since joining forces again and Touch Of Paradise, a pleasing third here on debut in early January, seems sure to go close for the combination. Connections will be very keen to get a win on the board for the daughter of Frankel. She must go close but John Gosden is going along nicely with his all-weather runners and his Galileo newcomer, GARRICK, may just spoil the party. Market strength would certainly bolster confidence in what looks an interesting maiden. Crindle Carr looks next best on the back of a much-improved run here last month when seemingly unfancied and makes the short-list along with possible improver War At Sea.
