AUTUMN LILY found things happening a little too quickly in the Chesham Stakes but the fact that Godolphin were prepared to chance her at that level suggests that she possesses ability and we'll take her to get back to winning ways. Lady Frances showed plenty of pace at Doncaster and is likely to find this easier than some of the novice events that she has taken part in while Flora Medici was a rare runner in selling class for Sir Mark Prescott and connections bought her back in after that Yarmouth success. Royal Connection didn't do a lot wrong in a recent Chester maiden though he'll need to confirm form with Mimi Luke to win this contest. Senorita Guest is a maiden but her owners are no strangers to winning at Ascot and she takes her chance off a light racing weight.
