No prolific winners among this bunch but Star Talent has placed a couple of times this year and could improve for the fitting of a visor. Impressionable has just come up short here the last twice but is creeping up the weights. Storm Eleanor is also worth considering and Elena has placed in three of her seven career starts, though is a little one paced. Having undergone wind surgery, BALLET RED was having a first run on Tapeta here last month and shaped with some promise. With the excellent Elisha Whittington doing the steering, Harry Dunlop’s filly could open her account in this.
