Roger Varian’s filly put up a massive performance when chasing home Boomer in the prestige at Goodwood. She led a furlong and a half down but was run out of it late on by some classy types. She drops down in grade now and the huge weight of 9-9 she has to carry should not be a problem. She rates the class act in this particular line-up. The likes of Nirodha could go well at an each-way price @ 8/1 but the top weight should have too much quality late on
Not beaten far in the Epsom Oaks when fifth last June and ran really well last time when third to Tarnawa and that form looks rock solid here. With the Gosden filly Enbihaar a short-priced fav at 5/4, this particular race has a real good each-way feel.
The selection could even take a step forward now going up in distance and the fav is a front-runner, who will be there to be shot at.
Is coming back off an 85-day break, but I’m hoping this has been the plan all along rather than some sort of niggling injury problem. His Royal Ascot run over the minimum trip was excellent, always out-paced and staying on really well in the closing stages. He sits well as far as the weights are concerned carrying 8-6 and could prove the second leg of a tidy double for jockey David Egan.
Has won two from three so far and possibly could be coming in here with a 100 per cent record but got squeezed at a vital stage at Sandown. She made no mistake on the July course winning last time in tidy fashion, staying on very strongly.
She can get the ball rolling for her recently-retired superstar sire Golden Horn, who was not short on stamina.
The step up to the mile looks perfect for this filly.
