Verdict

A big run from the beautifully bred Ebony Street on debut would not surprise but with form already in the book, preference is for CRESPANO, a promising second on debut and a fair fourth in a hot race at Saratoga last time. The experienced Charli Sunshine can prove the pick of the remainder.

Verdict

EAGER LEADER advertised her well-being when second over a route here last time and wouldn't need to improve much upon that effort to land the spoils. Par Lady and High Alpine look the best of the rest and are ones to consider for forecast purposes.
