In depth

Verdict

CONTARELLI CHAPEL quickened clear despite running green over the track and trip and should remain unbeaten unless the ground turns very testing. She had Freedom Of Speech almost 6 lengths behind and it's difficult to see a form reversal despite the latter returning with a victory last weekend. Her Stable companion Missing Matron won the opening race of the Turf season but has looked as though this trip was required in her two subsequent starts over the minimum. Quick Suzy showed the benefit of a very promising opening run when making all for a facile success over this trip at the Curragh and will test the selection's ability to act on easier going.
