WHAT CONNECTIONS ARE SAYING:
* “You never know if they can get the distance until they do it but she’s certainly fit enough,” Peeping’s trainer Ron Quinton.
* “Azkadellia will be a big danger. The Godolphin filly Ghisoni will also be hard to beat at the weights” Solicit’s trainer Gerald Ryan.
* “I’ve never sat on a filly that’s got gears like her. She’s a horse that does everything so easy.” Ghisoni’s jockey James McDonald.
