    Verdict

    WUHEIDA has won twice at the highest level. She has a penalty for beating a high-class field in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare in November but is difficult to oppose. Elegant Pose made a satisfactory reappearance in a Naas Group 3 having won a Listed contest at that track in October and could edge out Golden Legend for second spot as the latter hasn’t raced since a slightly disappointing effort at Saint-Cloud in October, though the French have won this in two of the last four years. Indian Blessing won a Listed race on the all-weather track at Deauville in November but may not be as effective on Turf and is held by Billesdon Bess on the form book.
