Verdict

FLYING JIB showed good progress last season culminating with a Listed victory over a mile here. The Coronation Stakes entry can make a winning reappearance with Dermot Weld's yard in red-hot form. Chicago Girl has a bit to find with the selection on latest running but Listed winner Wannabe Better has claims with a couple of runs under her belt. Peace Burg has been keeping better company than this for the Rouget yard in France. He may well figure on his first start for Ballydoyle but is penalised for winning a Group 2 event at Chantilly in June. Tahaany will do well to match stablemate Flying Jib but has more scope than Morning Frost.
