Verdict

John Gosden has a fair chance of taking both divisions as Cushion will be fancied, though she's become frustrating and has been a beaten favourite on her last four starts. She finished a couple of lengths in front of Society Pearl at Salisbury last time but the latter was returning from an absence and has a fair chance of turning the tables. International Love made a promising start over a mile at Kempton where she was staying on at the finish and though Bantam was well beaten into second at Lingfield the ground was very testing and she's likely to do better. ASTONISHING is bred for middle-distances so it was no surprise she found 7f too sharp on her only start last year. She looks sure to do better and is handed the vote in a tricky maiden.
