Verdict

Kosika has made virtually all in her last two starts over 7f and though tackling further and carrying an extra 5lb she doesn't know when she's beaten so will take some catching. Token Of Love is a real fast-ground specialist as she showed with a comfortable success at Newmarket. She's up 6lb but looks good for a position on the podium. Provenance made a successful debut at Kempton but didn't handle soft ground at Sandown. She's been given a break and this superbly-bred daughter of Galileo could be on a lenient mark. Aertex disappointed when stepped up in grade at Sandown on her hat-trick attempt and this looks even tougher but Gown has been crying out for this longer trip and rates a threat. FEEDYAH returned from Dubai to run a fine race in the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot. She was beaten less than 2l and, as that was her first start since February, she'll come on for the run and can take this.
