Verdict

FLEETING SMILE was beaten four lengths on her debut by Newfangled but that form looks better now given the latter has since won the Albany Stakes at Ascot. Richard Hannon's filly can get off the mark here. Lanansaak wears her owner's second colours and fellow newcomer Flawless Beauty is preferred as she's a half-sister to the high-class Wrote while Close At Hand is another debutant to note. Solvanna showed promise on her debut on the Polytrack but Summer Dream finished a couple of lengths behind the selection on her first start and disappointed last time.
