Verdict

The task for Anne Of Kiev and Russian Spirit is made that much tougher carrying penalties for their victories in Listed company and, though Golden Destiny has won over today's distance, her best form last year came over the minimum trip. Irish raider Tweedy has won on fast ground and should make a bold bid, while Aneedah coped well with the drop back in trip when going close in a Listed sprint at Ascot last month. ELSHABAKIYA has been aimed high this season with defeats in the Nell Gwyn and 1000 Guineas, but her earlier second to Dubawi Gold reads well. She gets the nod here, just ahead of Show Rainbow who shares a similar profile.
