Kion finished in front of DEBUTANTE’S BALL when fifth in a handicap at Windsor earlier this month. But the latter was having her first start of the year and re-opposing on much better terms today, Stan Moore’s filly gets the vote. Montague also has a shout at the weights with an apprentice’s allowance further helping his cause but Kaaba Stone has a bit to find though remains unexposed. Lope De Loop may prove best of the rest.
