AUGUST HILL goes from strength to strength and it's difficult to see her winning run coming to an end here, despite a double penalty. She gave 17lb and a three-length beating to Enchanting Smile at Wincanton in April so there looks to be little chance that the runner-up will reverse that form. Prettyisapicture is probably the danger as she'll improve on her third at Wetherby and none of the others make much appeal.
