Forecast

Gentlewoman (8/13), Break Of Day (5/1), Clarion (8/1), Whimbrel (10/1), Manana Chica (16/1), Red Romance (16/1), Molly's Game (16/1), Lapidary (20/1), Society Guest (20/1), Elena (25/1), Daryana (25/1), Powerful Star (33/1), Colonelle (50/1), Sweet Jemima (50/1), Gonbutnotforgotten (50/1), Masai Spirit (66/1), Ximena (66/1), Raha (100/1), Hurricane Heidi (100/1)

Verdict
John Gosden won this race with Perfection in 2018, and is doubly-represented by the clear form pick GENTLEWOMAN and the likely improver Whimbrel, so it's entirely plausible that a Gosden 1-2 is on the cards. The selection was a fast-finishing neck second to Clerisy over C&D at the Craven meeting and a replication of that form ought to be plenty good enough. Of the newcomers, the £58,000 yearling Society Guest is worth monitoring for any signs of market support, whilst Her Majesty The Queen will no doubt be keeping a keen eye on her fillies Break Of Day and Clarion.
  1. Gentlewoman
