In depth

Verdict

The vast majority of these are hard to fancy but JUST ISLA is the exception. She scored over track and trip last week and it would be no surprise if Peter Makin's filly can defy a penalty in this similar company. Black Truffle has won twice over today's distance on the Polytrack this year and may improve on only his fourth start on Turf but it's difficult to make a serious case for any of the remainder. Princess Cammie may prove the best of those as she returns to 7f.
