This is very competitive and SKYLLA gets the tentative vote over Duchess Dora and Olympic Ceremony. The selection is having only her third run today and her chance wasn't helped last time when she got loose before the start. She was only narrowly beaten by Summerinthecity over 6f but she has plenty of speed and she should be suited by this drop back to the minimum trip today. Duchess Dora won when last seen out in May at Catterick and the race has worked out well. It is a slight cause for concern that she has not been seen out since then but if she is fit enough to do herself justice then she should go well. Olympic Ceremony got caught in a pocket last time and he could be considered a little unlucky to finish third behind Flaneur. If he can get a clear passage here then he could be capable of making the frame. Bossy Kitty and Dancing Red Devil are others to consider, but the vote goes to Skylla.
