In depth

Verdict

Runner-up to the well-regarded A’Shaari on debut at Newmarket in August, READY TO VENTURE went on to land the odds at Yarmouth with a subsequent dual winner in third. The Kingman filly is bred to be even better at three and has multiple Group 1 entries. Creative Flair doesn’t have any fancy entries and she was showing signs of temperament last year but she did make all at Sandown on her second start and is the choice of William Buick ahead of Danilova, who ran in the Sweet Solera on her final start last season. Delta Bay kept finding to make a winning reappearance at Newmarket but she faces competition for the lead here. Prado was highly tried after winning at Salisbury in her first season and is preferred to Auria, even though she may be a little exposed.
