Kastasa was prolific last season, winning five of her six starts, notably a Group 3 over two miles at the Curragh on her final start.
She didn’t have to be at her best to make a winning return from 10 months off in a listed event at Gowran last month, her stamina – and no lack of ability – just about getting her out of what appeared a troublesome spot as the pace was picking up around three furlongs out.
Kastasa has a very likeable attitude, remains with the potential for better, and ought to make another bold bid to win again.
This looks a deep listed event, but The Perfect Crown looks very progressive and looks an interesting raider for Archie Watson.
He looked potentially smart when winning a back-end minor event by eight lengths last season, and for all he disappointed next time, he resumed his progress in devastating fashion at Lingfield earlier this month, stretching clear of his rivals in the straight in the style of one who has much more to offer.
Admittedly, he has to prove his effectiveness on turf, but there is no reason to think it will be a problem, and he is by far the most interesting runner here.
Tai Sing Yeh has slipped to a handy mark, and left the impression he could be working his way back to form when fourth at Leopardstown last time.
He was hindered by the worse of the draw on that occasion, too, and was caught further back than ideal as a result, still having plenty to do a furlong from home but staying on in good style.
He is entitled to come on again for that, and is one to be interested in from this sort of mark in a race that should be run to suit.
