The Ciaron Maher and David Eustace team have a big opinion of second-starter Royal Performance and he was good at Hamilton for his first start over a distance well short of what he is bred to be his best.
The step up to 1440m will be ideal, he has drawn well, and Mark Zahra takes the ride.
The current favourite, Oneira, was the short-priced favourite last time out and had every chance but didn’t look to run out a strong 1400m. It did do a bit of work in the early stages of the race but if it couldn’t run out the distance last time, but it’s hard to see it running it out this time when there’s an extra 40m added.
Team Hawkes are presenting first-starter Taken Everything in this 1000m maiden, and it looks to be a smart filly. It showed great speed and ability at its official trial at Rosehill and is the main chance in this race. Only knock is racing experience but as a three-year-old, she should have had plenty of education by now.
Godolphin’s Décor ran third behind Taken Everything at her last official trial and also looks to have ability but doesn’t quite match up to the Hawkes filly.
