Ladies Are Forever can never be easily dismissed at this level but she's penalised for winning a Group Three at York last month. A longer distance looked too far for Athenian last time but she won over today's trip at Newmarket on her reappearance while Hoodna should also go well back over 6f after a good effort in the Bunbury Cup. Spinatrix is capable in this grade if back to her best but was due to run at Ripon yesterday, as was Bondesire, while though Along Again managed a third in the Princess Margaret at Ascot last year she has shown nothing so far this. VALONIA drops back in distance today and it's Henry Candy's filly that gets the nod as she separated a couple of subsequent winners when third in a Listed race over 6f at Salisbury in June. Penny Drops was another due to run yesterday.
