13:50 – Dramatised

DRAMATISED and Mawj dominate the betting for the Lowther Stakes, but I think the anticipated battle is more of a mismatch. The performance Dramatised put up to win the Queen Mary was better that Mawj managed in the Albany, and the favourite has been kept back specially for this since. She will improve again for the step up to 6f having kept on powerfully at Ascot.

14:25 – Matching Sox

Perhaps the speed among the high numbers will be crucial here, but I was impressed with how professional MATCHING SOX was when winning on his debut at Kempton despite the favourite running waywardly in front of him. Andrew Balding’s debut winners tend to be well above average, and he should improve enough to play a big part in this sales race.

15:00 – Cruyff Turn

When CRUYFF TURN won the Clipper Logistics Handicap here a year ago, he made all the running, and he scored again on his only other C&D outing here in May. Draw and trip were against him in the Bunbury Cup last time, but he caught the eye in a big way and can make it 3-3 at the track.

15:35 – Alpinista 

I thought ALPINISTA was too big at around 2/1 here, and she rates banker material. Given her record against all opposition at Group 1 level in the past year or so, she looks one of the likeliest winners of the week, but is easy to back, perhaps due to a misplaced notion that French and German form is hard to read. I can’t have that, and she’s head and shoulders above her rivals in my eyes.

16:10 – Voodoo Queen

VOODOO QUEEN is out of her owner/breeder’s brilliant juvenile Cursory Glance, and the Frankel filly could be underrated given her progress to date. She isn’t certain to stay on pedigree, but kept on well over 1¼m last time, and doesn’t look a short runner.

13:50 – Dramatised
14:25 – Matching Sox
15:00 – Cruyff Turn
