Verdict

It could be worth chancing KONIGIN in a race that won't be the toughest handicap run here this summer. Luca Cumani is always respected when stepping one up in trip and with first-time handicappers and this filly ticks both boxes. She showed just enough latest to think that we have yet to see the best of her. Alexanderthegreat got his act together at Lingfield latest and the fact his leading trainer turns him out again so quickly is notable. Golden Image also merits respect with her last two efforts since stepped up to this trip both solid.
