Verdict

Last year’s Irish and Yorkshire Oaks winner SEVENTH HEAVEN has to compete off level weights against the boys but she’s the class act. The Ballydoyle filly looked as good as ever when chasing home Jack Hobbs in the Sheema Classic in Dubai on her reappearance and the others will need to have improved markedly over the winter to cause an upset. Across The Stars won the King Edward VII Stakes at Ascot last summer, however, and One Foot In Heaven won a Group 2 at Chantilly in October and was then third in the Hong Kong Vase. Galapiat has easily only won a couple of handicaps since joining Mark Johnston but will struggle to dominate this field.
