16/5

Easy winner of listed race on return last season and respectable efforts in Group 1 contests after. Made hard work of things when landing odds at Pontefract in June but a big player on pick of form.

6/1

Scopey filly who progressed last term, signing off with decisive success in a 1½m handicap at Salisbury. Driven out to land listed race at Saint Cloud last week so fit and in form, but this is harder.

Stoutly-bred filly who improved a chunk to win a 1¼m listed race at Salisbury last month. Took another step forward when 5-lengths second to Love in the Yorkshire Oaks on her first try at this trip.

2/1

No impact over inadequate 7f only start last season but has developed rapidly this term, winning by wide margins the last twice, including at listed level on her first attempt at 1½m last month.

Betting

Forecast

Alpinista (7/4), Katara (2/1), Antonia De Vega (16/5), Franconia (4/1), Sea of Faith (6/1), Queen Daenerys (16/1)

Verdict

KATARA took the step up in class and trip in her stride when a decisive winner of a listed race on the July course last month, and with further improvement likely, she can pass this assignment. Alpinista emerged with a lot of credit behind the high-class Love in the Yorkshire Oaks and that is form to take very seriously in this, with Antonia de Vega also of interest.
