In depth

Verdict

None of these inspire confidence with It's A Love Thing failing to figure since winning at Wolverhampton last month and Parikarma well beaten since finishing runner-up at Kempton earlier. International Law’s best efforts so far this year came in amateur races while both Hart Fell and TURBULENT POWER disappointed last time with the latter getting a token vote on her third over track and trip before that.
