11/4

Improved from debut to win a Haydock maiden over this trip and has run well twice in defeat since including a C&D Group 2 last month. Hung right when she had little chance with the winner at Newmarket last time and just about sets the standard here.

Keen early on debut at Newmarket but got the hang of things in impressive fashion to get her head in front. Well bred runner-up has won a decent looking maiden subsequently so can't be discounted if she takes a step forward from the run.

12/1

Won her first two starts but hasn't quite managed to justify the step up to Listed class and this is no easier. Needs to improve for the step up in trip.

A winner on debut at Musselburgh and ran well in Listed race at York on just her second start. Sure to be more to come here over this new trip and not ruled out.

6/4

Improved from her debut to win a Listed race at Newmarket in impressive fashion. Hard to know exactly what that form is worth but she has to be of interest here given the manner of her win and she's likely to take another step forward here.

7/2

150,000 gns yearling. Impressive winner at Newbury on debut when winning with a bit to spare. Will need a big step forward from that run and not as experienced as some but can't be ruled out.

20/1

Didn't get the clearest of passages when 1½L third at Musselburgh last month, but confirmed the promise of that when an eased down 5L winner at Carlisle upped to this trip last time. That wouldn't be the strongest form line here however.

Betting

Forecast

Royal Intervention (6/4), Angel's Hideaway (11/4), Scintilating (7/2), Chapelli (12/1), Aquarius (14/1), The Mackem Bullet (20/1), Nicki's Angel (20/1)

Verdict
ANGEL'S HIDEAWAY has already proven herself at this level and at this course having placed over course and distance at the Royal meeting and given that she's dropped in to Group 3 company here, she could be hard to beat. There's plenty of dangers with the likes of the winning debutantes Royal Intervention and Aquarius in the line up while Nicki's Angel may improve for the step up to 6f here.
  1. Angel's Hideaway
  2. Aquarius
  3. Royal Intervention
