Verdict

ABAQ failed to hang on for victory over 7f at Newbury on her debut and this shorter trip should suit. That experience will stand her in good stead here and she gets the vote. Simple Elegance looks next best of the others with a race under their belts but Godolphin's first colours are sported by the newcomer Impressive Victory. Natural Charm is bred to appreciate middle-distances while Honey Required is a half-sister to stablemate Brown Eyed Honey, engaged to run in the previous race on the card. Camdora cost 120,000gns and is another to note.
