Verdict

A tricky contest with a host of several improvers in the line-up but Aidan O'Brien's record in this race shouldn't be ignored and his filly FLEETING makes most appeal. Her Oaks effort is still fresh in the memory, making eye-catching headway from the rear of the field and this represents a drop in class. John Gosden's quartet are respected, most notably Star Catcher who shaped as if she would relish this extra distance behind Queen Power last time. That rival hinted that there was still more to come while Fanny Logan is another to consider.
