OUR QUEENIE is likely to start a short-priced favourite after last week's cracking run at Newmarket where she just failed to hold Lucky Kristale with the rest of the field in another parish. She'll take the world of beating in that kind of form and the others with experience haven't shown enough to suggest they can land this though Trinity Boy is obviously well regarded having started favourite on his debut at Leicester. Richard Hannon trains the selection and also the newcomer Ligeia, who is a sister to a 5f winner and should have plenty of pace.
