This could turn into a battle between two of Newmarket's knights of the realm with Sir Henry narrowly preferred to Sir Michael courtesy of TICKLED PINK. The filly finished runner-up on both juvenile starts in decent company and looks nailed on for a maiden but there is the obvious concern that she hasn't been seen since the middle of last July and may well need the run. However, she's clearly well regarded as she still holds a Royal Ascot entry in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes and is taken to prevail. Ladyship should also have no trouble finding a maiden for the Stoute team and will be hoping she doesn't run into another Moonstone Magic here as was the case last time. It should be an interesting duel although James Fanshawe's Pivotal filly, Catwalk, made a really good impression first time up at Doncaster and may threaten the aforementioned pair if progressing. More Than Words has place claims too.
