Queen Catrine shaped well enough on her debut at Newmarket to suggest she'll be winning soon but JACQUOTTE DELAHAYE is just preferred. Bryan Smart's filly was only beaten a length at Musselburgh last time and the first two home have since boosted the form with good efforts in the Windsor Castle at Ascot on Tuesday. Tanseeb went close at Thirsk recently though had earlier finished just behind Zac Brown at York but the former's stablemate, Handwoven, showed some improvement last time and looks best of the remainder,
