Forecast

True Self (8/11), Cimeara (6/1), South Sea Pearl (13/2), Peach Tree (7/1), Moteo (10/1), Jaega (10/1), Simply Beautiful (20/1), Flowering Peach (25/1)

Verdict
A race dominated by Aiden O'Brien who fields half the runners but the contest could go to the more experienced filly CIMEARA who needs to start justifying her huge September 2018 price tag. She is dual course and distance winner and warmed up for this contest with a recent outing at The Curragh and is one of the few with proven ability on the expected fast conditions. Peach Tree might prove the best of the O'Brien fillies, she ran well at Royal Ascot before weakening close home and if her jockey can dominate from the front, she should hold every chance. South Sea Pearl is another who could come into the reckoning and looks certain to be suited by a stronger pace.
  1. Cimeara
  2. Peach Tree
  3. South Sea Pearl
