In depth

Verdict

ORIENTAL CROSS, who originally cost 220,000 euros, went for £30,000 at the sales in December after winning a Lingfield bumper on Polytrack and has changed stables. She should be at home on this surface and can continue her progress. Hills Of Connemara won a point at Dromahane in November and is likely find this on the short side, as he did in a Kelso bumper last time. It's All About Me didn't appear happy on soft ground at Catterick when last seen in March and may do better on this surface but Strike The Pose, a surprise winner in a Kelso bumper in November, hasn't been able to build on that. Donnas Dream is stoutly-bred and will do better with a stiffer test in time but Bournville has plenty of genuine pace in her pedigree and could provide the main threat.
