Verdict

WILD COCO and Meeznah finished one-two at Newmarket last time but the conditions of this Group 3 see the younger filly 4lb better off. She's also the more progressive of the pair and will need to score if her entry in the St Leger is a serious consideration. Field Of Miracles finished a splendid second to Banimpire in the Ribblesdale Stakes at the Royal meeting and rates a major threat on that high-quality form. She steps up to this trip for the first time though, hence the preference for the Cecil charge. French raider Shankardeh looked as if she needed this trip last time but probably needs to improve and Motrice makes more appeal. Not disgraced in the Gold Cup at Ascot, she should give a good account at this more suitable trip. Ship's Biscuit is currently proving frustrating.
