Verdict

This should be an informative maiden as most of these fillies will improve as the season develops. Little separated TOAST OF THE TOWN and Bohemian Dance in the race won by Wednesday's Cheshire Oaks heroine Banoffee at Newbury and neither were unduly punished. We'll take John Gosden's charge to come out on top again but it might be a close thing. Sharqawiyah steps up in trip after an improved third at Newmarket and has claims while Montjess has a middle-distance pedigree. Near Time shaped with promise at Sandown, despite running green, while Fersah and Okavango may be the best of the newcomers.
