Verdict

Jillnextdoor wasn't disgraced in the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot and steps up in trip today while Malilla showed improvement at Goodwood last time and should be in the mix. Richard Hannon's record in this points to a bold bid from Glossy Posse though she has some catching up to do and a chance is taken on the newcomer FLOATING ALONG. The half-sister to top-class sprinter King's Apostle cost 400,000gns and an entry in next month's Cheveley Park suggest she can score at the first time of asking. Valais Girl and Greenery are other debutants to note for the future.
