Verdict

This tight-looking race poses an interesting puzzle but WONDERFUL ROCK is the one to keep on side. She is bidding for a second success at this distance. Wine Tasting has to be on the shortlist, although she could struggle to defy a hike in the weights, Princess Kesh is likely to have a big say, and the otherwise interesting Groundhog Day has a stamina query to answer at this trip.
