Verdict

WILLOW LANE is strongly fancied to prevail. She didn't do much wrong last time (form has been boosted since) and has won over this trip before. Elusive Swann has run well previously over this course and distance while Wedding Bliss would need to be forgiven a poor run last time to be a contender, and Indus Knight should be in the shake-up.
