Forecast

Fairyland (6/4), Angel's Hideaway (7/4), Little Kim (9/1), Firelight (11/1), Flawless Jewel (12/1), Queen Jo Jo (16/1), The Mackem Bullet (25/1), Stage Play (40/1), Orange Blossom (66/1)

Verdict

Flawless Jewel falls into the "could be anything bracket" after her demolition job over vastly inferior rivals at Pontefract last month, but Royal Ascot (and other) form-lines suggest that this should be a straightforward shootout between Angel's Hideaway and FAIRYLAND. Whilst the John Gosden-trained runner has shown her well-being since the Royal meeting and progressed to take a Group 3 prize latest (holds The Mackem Bullet), the selection has merely kept her box warm at Ballydoyle. However, Fairyland is clearly a very pacy filly and this track should suit her far better than Ascot, so on that basis alone, this 925,000 gns daughter of Kodiac gets the firm nod.
  1. Fairyland
  2. Angel's Hideaway
  3. Little Kim
